Here I am ready to take off to a show 300 miles away. You can see the old F150 tow vehicle peaking out. I need to start thing about selling that. It could do the towing or camper hauling but not both on long trips. This was the first fully loaded trip for the F250 and it did great got right at 16mpg for the 600 mile trip.

That is friggin nuts!
lol....good job!
Yeah that was way heavier than I ever thought it would be when I loaded it. I have a scale just a 1/4 mile from my house and I had to know what it weighed so I run it on the scale and just the trailer and wood was an even 30,000lbs:eek:. Had to put it in 4wd just to get up the gravel driveway I would never do that again and wouldn't recomend it to anyone.

Yeah, same here. A pic with the airbags aired up and still have a little rear droop. I'm thinking I can drop the neck down a little and maybe aleviate some of that. It actually tows best when it's loaded with my Jeep in the back.

sorry for not responding sooner have been very busy lately but I think the only thing that kept the hitch on was the fact that it is a Ford:). I only had about a 1000 lbs. of tongue wieght on the hitch.
