2009 Silverado 1500 4X4 5.3V8 getting 11mpg pulling our 92 Excella 29'. We purchased our AS in November '17 and it spent the winter in our garage getting a interior/exterior makeover. First trip was from MD to Fl in July '18 for a couple of weeks on the beach. They both performed flawlessly!Click image for larger version

Holy Smoke!
I did the bear tooth on a motorcycle and it's tight in places!
BTW, Charles Kuralt said the Beartooth was the most beautiful road in America.
It's probably in my top 5, but it's hard to beat "Going to the Sun road".
I recommend Red Lodge as a place to stay. Cool cowboy town.

Beartooth was easy. It's twisty for sure, but plenty of room to tow. I will say, however, that on one of the steepest uphill pulls, I drove through some shale which had just come off the mountain, and got a flat on the right rear tire of my F150. Fortunately, I was able to make a pullout, and jack the trailer and truck to enable putting the spare on. Pretty sporty day! Beautiful scenery, though, and I'd do it again.

Wow,, been on Beartooth three times on motorcycles, and I sure didn’t want a flat. Haven’t had our AS through there yet, but it’s a place I definitely want my LW to see. Hope you went ahead and went on the Chief Joseph also. What beautiful country.

Re-posting from the F150Forums:

On our way home from Toscano RV Airstream dealer. Stayed the night in San Luis Creek campground where this picture was taken. I definitely know it's back there, but it tows nice and stable.

I spent several years lurking, reading and learning from both F150forum and Airforums, and it paid off. I was well prepared when we pulled the trigger on both the truck and trailer. I only hope that I can give back to both forums as much as I have received some day.

Now to make time to go camping!

I would like more information on the mirrors for your Colorado. We have a 2016 also. All I’ve been able to find are the strap on style tow mirror.
Thanks,

Milenco Mirrors distributed by Dometic will do the trick on the Colorado.

Here's a picture of them a little bit covered in ice.
