Try 1000 lbs heavier than the largest Airstream. And the noise from the Ram was the engine cooling fan. It needs to come on and cool the engine when you work it hard.

Colors and sounds don't translate in videos. Sort of like the moron driver with one arm on the windowsill and one hand on the wheel, his fat ass leaning too far back to control the thing. Like we need suburbanites to tell us what is and isn't in a 1T. I'd say it is too dumbed down to be of use, but those two wouldn't get it.

That noise that you hear is horsepower which makes heat causing the fan to come on.

A Ford dealer in our area is giving away a free puppy when you buy a new truck.

So I went to the local Chevy dealer to see if they could beat this. They told me they didn't need to match that deal because Ford just doesn't want you to walk home by yourself when your new truck breaks down on the way home.

We just got this long bed truck to put my husband's Harley in the back while pulling the AS.

Loading and unloading will be an experience from the truck bed ... it is not easy from the lower perch of the EB either ...

What rear end ratio did you get? Is 3.31 good enough for towing most Airstreams?

The 3.55 is supposed to be the "new" 3.73 due to the ratio of the 6 speed tranny. If you aren't going to be towing in a lot of mountains, the 3.31 should do fine. Probably get a little better mileage, especially solo.

My husband said it is a 3.55 and it will pull a house down the road & up a mountain. We pulled our AS previously w/o incident with our Ford F-150 EcoBoost.

Here is the ramp for loading/unloading the Harley in case anyone is interested Three-Piece Folding Aluminum EZ Rizer Motorcycle Loading Ramp System

Looks like a good setup, I couldn't load it ,if I fell over, it is a long way to the ground, and it would be very painful..very nice......
