I don't have a camper but dream of one when I get older, and I have recently been dreaming of a nice dually. You are living my dreams my man! Enjoy that beauty and hopefully lots of camping and fun with the families for a long time to come.

Thank you,,,we actually bought this trailer so we can go with my daughter and her family. This includes 2 grandsons and one weenie dog!! Great to have a bath and a half and large beds. Wife and I worked a long time to get something like this. Leaving tomorrow for a 4 night trip.

Fueled up a few days ago and this is what fuel mileage I've been getting. Pretty close to what my '13 F-150 Ecoboost was getting. Most of the miles were in the 50 to 70 mph range...some idling during this time also. Pretty good for a large truck!

Thanks guys...I was also happy when it showed 10.5 when towing. The truck has a 48 gallon fuel tank and a 7.5 gallon DEF tank also...so that's a good bit of weight just in fuel. Probably around 350 lbs. This truck has definitely exceeded my expectations.

Put this BakFlip MX4 cover on this morning...a lot heavier then the BakFlip VP I had on my '13 F-150.

Thanks..congrats on the new truck...these 17's are amazing. Went to buy a leftover '16 but came out with a '17 and its been more then I expected. I've had mine 3 months so far but only 3K miles on it.
