Moved up from a 2012 6.7 f350 cclb srw with 3.55 gears. Truck had custome tuning, egr deleats, cold air intake.

I ordered my 2019 f350 cclb srw with the same gears. My 36’ 5er weighs 13k dry, add 200 gallon water to it plus all the BS i have in it. It probly weighs 15,500. My 2019 had 347miles on it when i pulled my 5er this past weekend. This truck stock blows the doors off my other 6.7 towing the camper. The dash was reading 13.1 mpg towing the camper at 65mph. Not sure how accurate that is but seemed to match with the DTE calculations, Not only did it handle the weight better it also pulled it easier in my opnion, not to crap on the old one that one did just fine but the new 6.7 is advertised at 450hp and 935ftlbs torque. My 2019 was ordered to my exact specs and it came out to $68,860. Out the door tax tag title in south florida. Love the new truck

What trim did you get? Taxes and fees here ad almost 10% to the price.

Mileage has been about the same 6-7mpg average. The stock 6.7 is a bit more powerful than a 100hp 6.0 tune. Itís a nice improvement.
Sorry to be off topic but your post made me realize just how much of a factor wind is!! I pull an 8k 32' TT in the rolling hills of the midwest and only get 9 MPG with my '16 250. Your trailer is 3 times my weight with 2 MPG drop. That's insane. Anyway, sorry for the squirrel moment. Carry on!

Ha, I average closer to 5.9 most the time but that is just cause Of the wind or hills. On the flat cruise it shows averaging 6.3-6.6 on the dash and that seems pretty accurate. So between 5.5-7.0. Is say my overall towing average is 6.0 mpg

19 F450

Iíve owned previous vehicles but I wonít waste the forum space to list them, oh ya, and you donít care

You are so right about the wind resistance factor. Although our 5er has a somewhat rounded cap, it still feels like a 4x8 sheet of plywood on the front creating drag.

I've often wondered if those wings you can mount on the truck would actually do anything. I've read lots of material on them and not convinced either way. Wish I could try one out on trial for 30 days.

Speaking of MPG.....I'm getting the same MPG on my 6.7 with a 3.55 limited slip as I did on my 6.0 with a 4.10. I was hoping that the 3.55 would give me some mileage benefit but none that I can claim.

My truck will be 2 yrs old next month and I've been real satisfied with it so far. Tows our 377MBS Solitude easily and safely. Had the Caribou paint applied to the lower part of the truck to match the camper. Wife's idea and I love it!

Beautiful rig Paw Paw, looks like mine! I pull a 42 ft 2019 Solitude 375RES with my 2019 F350 Platinum dually. I'm at 3800 lbs pin weight and 16500 trailer weight. The 6.7 pulls it very easily. at 65 mph its anywhere from 8.5 - 9.5 mpg with 3:55 gears. It's a relaxing pleasure to tow these big trailers with the new dually! Will post a pic if I can figure it out lol.

I put 100,000 miles on a 2012 6.7 and it was a great truck. f350 SRW with CCLB. Truck never left me stranded. Had great power. I had a Nox sensor replaced under warranty as well as a harness. Both issues caused no drivability problems and took less than a day to fix.

I did replace the same bushing in the front suspension 2 times in 100,000 miles. It was a $25 bushing. I also replaced brakes.

I purchased a 2018 model almost 1 year ago and have put 16,000 miles on it. Love the power and refinement. No issues. Oil minder said to change oil at 9800 miles (had me nervous) and Blackstone said oil was great.

The 6.7 had been a home run for Ford. Any brand can have some lemons. I don't personally know of anyone with a 6.7 who has a lemon or wouldn't buy another one. This is not to say that Ram and GM don't make a nice vehicle. But, even consumer reports puts the HD Ford diesel ahead of the other 2 in reliability. Ram actually has a terrible reliability rating...which is unfortunate.
