Agreed. Went from a '11 EcoBoost Screw 4wd to a '16 6.2 F250 Screw 4wd. Towing is a night and day difference. My trailer weighs 7500 loaded and the F250 feels extremely better "planted" on the...

No. I'm saying that if you're just connecting the WDH and haven't measured the front fender return via a measuring tape or more accurately a scale, you don't know the hitch. You're trying to bake a...

Great looking 5th wheel. My next door neighbor has a Solitude 310GK and it is gorgeous inside and out. They will be starting their full-timing adventure July 19 when their house officially closes.

Anyone know what the "FX4" stickers weigh on a Superduty? I took mine off and figured the weight savings increased my payload by a solid 4-5oz. :jester:
