I am considering a ecoboost with the towing package in order to tow a slide in truck camper and boat through the colorado mountains. Does anyone have any real experience with how well the ecoboost engine performs when towing approximately 8-9000 lbs through the mountains and what kind of mpg you have experienced. Thanks for your help.
If it was me and I was starting from scratch I would go with an F250/F350 with 8 foot bed and get a full size slide in camper...11 or 12 footer. I would get a extended reciever bar and hook the boat on that. My dad did that with his and went for 4 months from STL to the far reaches of Northern Alaska, BC and the Yukon, twice, over 14,000 miles. He never had a problem and could launch into many of the streams/rivers in North America.
