My 2011 max tow ecoboost with timbrens and a non slider B&W hitch. Trailer is a 2013 Rockwood Ultralite model 8280ws with the Sidewinder pin box. Even with the 5.5' bed on the truck, no clearance problems. I can turn as tight as I want going forward. Haven't tried to jacknife it going backwards yet, and don't see a need to. I have towed for about 1500 miles already, and the towing experience is very comfortable. Pulled a couple of 6000 ft. passes in Utah, and it did just great. Coming from a Chevy duramax to this ecoboost, and I am very impressed with the low end torque.
Your Rockwood has a very similar floor plan to my Cougar 299RKS. I wonder how they managed to get the pin weight about 250lbs less? How was descending the passes in Utah?
I had considered the Timbrens, but went with SuperSprings. I see your truck looks level where I still have a slight rake with mine. What do you think of the Timbrens? And how much rail clearance do you have?

Ok, first post here, figured this was as good of thread as any to start. Here is my Airstream Basecamp being towed by my Raptor in Pacific City, OR. Airstream made about 300 of these little toy haulers between 2007 and 2008, enjoy!
Diggin this pic. Cool setup, any interior pics?
EDIT: I'm going to Oregon in August. Hopefully I find this beach!

Great thread, def my fav. I also dig through the site looking for pics of TT's & boats. Looking to get a TT soon, just looking for something that will fit my needs. I have a SCrew Raptor and can only tow 8000 lbs. So I'm looking for something about 5000 lbs fully loaded and "wet". I would love to find a toy hauler in that range so I can take my jet ski with us, but that seems unlikely.
Check out some of these, I haven't ever had a forest river yoy hauler but have had a few Rockwoods and the quality is there.
This is what I was towing and what I was towing with.. also the reason I bought the EB F150 . I haven't even hooked up to it yet but can't wait to see how it does! Disclaimer "no puppies were hurt in the towing of this TT", let the tow rating Nazi's loose .
This is a huge trailer... even with your EB, you will not forget it's back there ;-)
What do you put at the back of this thing... just curious
