I've been towing my 1995 28 classic around with a 1998 Ford E350, 7.3 TD. This is a conversion 15' BOX TRUCK.
The rear overhang is a bit much and not to be ignored
I've put 120,000 on the truck and it now has 249,000 miles.
It carries Yahama XT225, a freezer, 6 batteries, solar panels on it's substantial roofastate, let's just say I refer to it as "My rolling garage"
U-joints, AC compresses, Vacuum booster, alternator, tension pulley, steering box.
The cab IS NOISY, the ride when hitched is smooth.
All GVW's are maxed out. I get 11 MPG towing, and 13 MPG without the trailer. I've been up Monarch Pass too many times. Yes, I crawl at around 20MPH. It's the DOWN HILL that will kill ya!
I'm on my 2nd trannie. I also use an "AIR RIDE" hitch with a Reiss dual cam with 600# bars.
I had front end separation when I purchased the 28. I repaired the front end and installed the AirRide, the front end has remained tight as a drum after 100,000.
I'm a full timer
