Could Not Be Happier!!!!!!

Well fellows I hooked up the old camper today and went camping for the first time with my new 05 F350. I have a 30ft tow behind 5800lbs., I will say I felt alot safer in the 350 than I did in my Toyota Tundra. I will go on to say that the 350 will walk the dog with that camper behind it. I could not even tell the thing was back there. I caught myself going 75 mph at several points and I never would go that fast with the tundra it scared the S@#T out of me when that thing got to pushing me. Thanks for all the advise I really like my new truck!!!!!!

Amazing isn't it... I've towed a lot of trailers over the years with vans and small trucks. I always dreaded it. I towed a 12 foot Uhaul to Florida for my mom a couple years ago. That trip scared the sh** out of me. Every time a semi would pass me, it would start swinging, and above 70 or so, it was just screwy.

With the super duty, I can't even feel a 6k trailer. I've probably made 10 trips with a trailer, and it makes no difference over unloaded. It's not even tiring driving.

Ive pulled the same trailers with my 91 F150, a 24' enclosed with cars in it and all, was a massive strain for the older 5.0L gas v8, i mean bad gearing etc... i WORKED that truck just to hit 55mph, the superduty feels like im racing entering the highway and get outta da way by the time im merging on lol. Whenever you have to come to an "emergency stop" you'll appreciate all the capabilities of the truck too. Ive towed with many other trucks and even its smaller brother F150 cant compete with it.

For all those Toyota humpers who really believe the hype about towing 11k in an tundra, good luck, half that would probably be the maximum i'd ever think to safely tow with a half ton.
