Travel Trailer Towing 3.31 electronic locking
Hello.. I bought a new 2013 FORD F150 STX super cab, 2wd, (5.0L, V8 with 3.31 electronic locking RR axle) a few weeks ago. I love the truck and always wanted a FORD full size.. always. I traded in a 2006 Nissan Frontier.
My Nissan actually did a pretty good job pulling my 23 foot WILDWOOD camper. Camper weighs about 3800 pounds empty.. probably about 4500 loaded (no water).. but I was looking for the added comfort of pulling with the bigger FORD. The Nissan was rated to pull 6100 pounds.. the FORD: 8100, The Nissan was 265hp.. FORD: 360hp.. plus going from V6 to V8.
However.. after doing a little (after purchase) looking.. I kinda wish I had bought a truck with the 3.55 or 3.73 axle. I don't really understand what the difference is.. but i see that the towing capacity is about 1000 pounds more than the 3.31.
Anyway.. I already have the 3.31.. and it I think it will pull my present camper with no problems.. just wondering what, and how much.. you guys are towing with the 3.31 electronic lock rr axle? I might wanna move up to a bigger travel trailer someday.
