I've owned over a dozen Chevy trucks but this truck is quickly becoming one of my favorite trucks.
If you haven't already, there is a Lance Owners Forum "LanceOwners.org" which is rather light on participation, but can be informative when needed.
We got our MY12 Lance 1985 in June, and the Ford F-150 FX4 SCREW EB (Max Tow) a week later. Although my Range Rover could tow it fine, being wider than my previous trailer (8ft vs 7ft) made it impossible to see behind, even with mirror extenders.
Traded the wife's Audi Q5 for the F-150. She actually likes the truck better. Go figure.
I found the ride rather "bouncy" with the F-150, but just installed some "Rancho 9000XLs" for the rear to see if I could smooth it out.
