Costs, with all needed modifications to meet street rules and navigation, take the us price, add 50-60% and divide it through the dollar-euro exchange curse.
~300$ anual taxes because its weight taxed and not cubic taxed.
Dieselfuel is around 6,0-6,5$ per gallon. Gasoline 7,0-7,5$ per gallon.
Its a 100% OEM vermilon red F350 Lariat SuperCab Shortbox.
The driving speed is around 65-67mph. In cause of the trailertowing.
As single vehicle in the recreation time or if i don't need the trailer and the box is big enough up to 110mph. Limited by the tires, only 110mph speedindex. The engine is good enough 125mph, but not the gearbox.
The trailerbrakes are working, but they are surgebrakes. They are not so strong than a E-brake system. The main brakework must the TV do. So downhill with 7% is hard and the autobahn is not that empty, what you would wish. Especially forgein drivers that don't have enough training on the german street conditions and rules are problematic. They can't estimate distances and speeds as good as needed.
