Went from a 13 to 18 but both of mine had the 3.5. The 10 speed is a game changer. My 18 has about 400 pounds more payload with a better trim package, and the FX-4 package that the 13 didn't have.

In addition, the transmission will do a lot of downshifting when you apply brakes. Let it do it's thing.

Peak torque and HP in the 3.5 eco and coyote are fairly close. Where they differ, is when that torque kicks in. Turbocharging brings the max torque in around 1500rpm and keeps it there. The Coyote...

I got 9 in my 18 eco with 3.55gears pulling a Rockwood Mini Lite 2509S on our first outing this year. The trailer weighs just over 6000lbs.

Murphy bed takes 30 seconds to fold up/fold down and I have more usable floor space in my 25' bunkhouse than my in-laws had in their 30' one. I can deal with folding the bed down for that. My wife...

I'm using the tireminder setup that has the solar charged display. Works well. I'm not a fan of how it's supposed to mount to the windshield, and wish the display rotated a little more so I could...

Normal. When you use the brake pedal the computers are doing their wizardry. When you squeeze the levers it's just actuating a rheostat that modulates braking input.

Cheapest thing: Keep your speed down. In fact, I'd double check those tires because there's a good chance they have a 65mph speed rating if they're the ones the factory installed.

Next up,...

Towing/hauling, probably not. Daily driving, definitely. My 13 3.5 got about 16mpg mostly highway. My 18 gets 19+. With a 6.2, you'll be lucky to get 14.

That said, if I had a small car to...

You shouldn't be having an issue with that set up. I'll echo others and suggest you take the rig to a scale, and start there. It could be as simple as how you have your trailer loaded. I'd check...

Looks good. My last truck was Blue Jean Metallic. That color looks great with chrome accents and when it's polished up it really pops. The McKee's tire coat works really well as long as you don't...

Looks good. Excellent approach. We nearly bought an Imagine 2400BH but went with a rockwood mini lite 2509S because of a few features we liked better. This is a good resource, the Grand Design...

I would use tow/haul over manually shifting. Tow/haul mode changes shift points, holding the gears a little longer, and it also locks the torque converter sooner, which keeps your fluid temps a...

Smokeywren hits the nail on the head with this one as usual. When looking, ignore the dry weight of the camper. It doesn't include anything. 2 full propane tanks and a battery will add at least...

That 3/4 ton will ride just fine when it has a bunch of weight on the hitch, and you could go buy just about any travel trailer you want and quite a few 5th wheels will be in range should you decide...

I didn't watch the whole thing, but did watch a couple snippets. The best part can be seen in the very beginning: He's in an open parking lot with nothing to hit. Great way to practice if it's your...

We are already seeing some of those here in the STL area. Bare bones, no towing package ETC. For what you want to do, I think you need at least a Max Tow package, or order an HDPP. Here's the...

I just went through this decision. We wanted a travel trailer and narrowed it down to about 5 models. I started truck shopping. The MSRP between similarly equipped F-150 and 250 Gas aren't all that...
