It may actually be too big of a vehicle for the application.
Welcome to the forum. I see you listing yourself as from Yellowknife, Alberta. So enquiring minds need to know; is if Yellowknife or someplace in AB. We spent 25 years in Hay River so its not everyday you see Airstreamer's from the north.

F150 for the new 25 footer

Hello and congratulations,

I just posted yesterday about my experience with a 25 footer and my F150 ECO BOOST. Plse look at my post. The important specs are listed in your owners manual. I was surprised at how varied the capacities are of the various sized F!50s. It depends on your vehicle wheelbase, engine size, rear diff ratio and if you have a factory tow package installed. My personal decision was to only tow a max of 80% capacity of the vehicle. I weighed my completely loaded rig on the scales at our local landfill. I found that the complete rig only weighed in at just a shade over 6000 kg. This is well within specs and well under the 80%.
