Good luck on what ever you get.

I really like the Jay Flight Line. Some of the best build quality and materials I've seen in many campers and yet they are some of the most affordably priced even with a lot of stand out features.
not sure as of yet

Good luck with finding your new camper. Seems there's more floorplan choices now than there ever has been.

Not so much camper, but we can camp in it at shows when needed. Its an 04 Sooner 3201, dry weight 4550 with two horses and tack with stuff for the weekend its goes up to 7K or as much as 7500 depending on what we take. Truck is 2013 F150 STX 4wd 5.0 with 3.55 gears. This truck tows like a dream, and no airbags needed the suspension is stock. The truck was loaded with gear in this pic, but no horses aboard but they are all on the trailer axles and actually lighten the pin weight a bit.

Whats the make and model of your "old' rig? The one with a Z on the side. It looks like a longer version of my Gulfstream Streamlite.

I just completed my 6 day vaca from AZ to SanDiego....pulling my 8k+...33' travel trailer....and Man, ....what an EASY PULL!
Unbelievable, set the cruise and steer.The ride is frickin smooth (air bags!) ...the power off of a dead start is immediate and linear.Don't even have to get into the throttle hard?!- it's truly an amazing machine ! Put on around 940 miles round trip on her and averaged 12.2 mpg-(towing & unhooked)
And I can get out of my own way towing ....pretty quick... when a semi comes up on me.
Ford definitely hit a home run with the Boost!
