Almost traded the truck in...almost

I've been reading up on and test drove a 2013 F-150 CCSB Ecoboost FX4 loaded and factory blacked out, but decided I just couldn't do it. I only owe 22K on the truck and I knew I couldn't tow a 5th wheel camper if I choose to buy one. They are nice and that motor is sick.

i saw an f-150 today with a fifth wheel. i think they are making smaller ones with shorter overheads to accommodate the short box

My buddy bought one and while its a great truck, as soon as you hook a trailer to it the mileage plummets.

The mileage plummets but how many times you going to have a trailer hooked to it? Unless you are a professional hotshot driver or you tow hard every weekend an F150 would suit 85% of most people towing needs IMO.

I agree with you. If I were to get rid of my truck I would get an F150 with the 6.2 in it just because I like the sound of a V-8.

V8 all the way. I think they are still working out the kinks in that Ecoboost.

Funny story, I went to trade my truck in on a nice 2011 FX4 with the 5.4 in it. I test drove it while he was test driving mine. We both got back to the dealership and I said thats the slowest truck I've ever driven. He looked at me and said, "your truck is like a Got Dam race car" lol

Oh I know. I have an 05 6.0 which is down for the count until I come up with the funds for a swap. I'm stuck driving my 04 F250 gas job... I almost think I could get out and run faster than the truck sometimes. Once I get the 05 on the road I am seriously thinking of dropping a Cummins in the gas job.

I've been thinking about a new F150 also, but I just can't see myself spending $50k on a halfton!
