My rear was riding a little low when I first hooked up my trailer (hitch set up at dealer), but aired the bags up a little (30psi) and leveled it back out but didn't lighten the front. On the way home it rode a little ruff so I inflated to 55psi and it smoothed the ride out but still did not raise the front.

I am partial to red so fell in love with the Tango. Didn't see anything else TT in that color. Its light enough for the F150. Initially towed with F350 SRW and F450 dually Now with the F150 really noticed the need for WDH and sway control. As an aside dont forget the washer setup on the WDH to get the 5 links.

Yesterday I returned from a 1980 km, nine day trip. My first real tow with my F150 and really my first real tow other than an 18 wheeler.
I can now actually say I love my truck! The relatively effortless performance both accelerating and slowing had me feeling relaxed.

The mileage sucked. I got 30 L /100 km most of my trip up north from Calgary to Peace River thanks to strong headwinds for the last 700 km of the journey. It averaged out to 25 L /100 km by the time I was home.
The GCWR was about 12500 lb but the trailer is like a sail at 10.5' high.

The EB actually sounds pretty good... when aggressively accelerating up a 5 degree slope in third gear.

Anyway this thread is about pics.

The first pic shows a quick stop in Whitecourt, AB on Friday, at the leading edge of a blizzard. There were a few AWD SUVs squirming about in the ditch 10 minutes later. We were firmly planted.

Second is getting hitched up and ready to leave the campsite in Gibbons, AB on Sunday morning. Nice people there but it never got warmer than +2.

Third is at the Flying J in Red Deer on Sunday afternoon.

Fourth is my pitiful mileage (metrage?).

Fifth is a pic of the day I brought the trailer home, with my Dakota. Just to raise some eyebrows.

Some have expressed interest in interior shots. I like seeing them so here are mine: The interior pics are from the dealer website when I bought the trailer last fall.

Good to see this thread back on target! Keep it alive!

@sllydderrr

Your gas mileage seems about right at ~9.4mpg avg. You really can't expect much better without having either a diesel or a much more aerodynamic load...

I had posted some pics of the exterior of my unit a while back, and some had asked for some interior pics. I have not had a chance to get those, but am posting some stock photos of the same trailer. a 2012 FunFinderX 210UDS. It is a very nice unit for those who want a light weight smaller trailer. I enjoy looking at the trailers here, very impressed with the different set-ups. Keepum coming.

Finally got around to getting some pics with my camper hooked up. Just brought it home to clean it up for the next trip. Can't wait to hit the road again.
