We are new to this and very much appreciate your thoughts. I realize no one can predict the future but is anyone pulling a trailer with a high mileage F-150?
Again thank you.
I would add a brake controller, transmission cooler, and tow mirrors. At 137,000 miles you should be fine. I would make sure your PM is up to date and that your belts and cooling system components are in good condition.
We pull with an 03 F150 with 266,000 on the odometer. I added the brake controller along with associated wiring and an aux transmission cooler when we started towing the RV. I replace our belts and hoses every 6 years and change the oil every 5,000 miles.
