The thing was ultra reliable but just too much of a dinosaur in the age of bells and whistles.....and LOOOOONG! One of the plus points in the 150 is the management of multiple trailers, right down to monitoring the miles on each. I look forward to the pro trailer backup system, but I have trained my wife, so don't know if I will rely on that. The main negative that I have seen so far is downhill on a steep grade, and I think that for those situations, you could just boost the trailer braking. I would appreciate reading owners experience in that category.
Hi, a lack of engine braking is there, but everything else is great. I have only once towed my trailer with my 2014 F-150 Ecoboost; It was, cross country, for 3 1/2 months and over 13,000 miles. So I have some experience.
