hi cathy and welcome to the big show...
as paula suggests aoa is a top notch dealership.
great selection, great pricing and honest dealing with worry free service.
and it's not that far from fort scott, i pass through there several times each year on my way to/from searcy.
knowing/understanding HOW you plan to use the trailer and HOW MUCH u can afford to spend, is critical for selection.
purchase and repair and upgrades all cost moola!
so try on LOTs of models and find what works for you.

hi edee and here ya go!
your 06-f250 will handle the tongue mass on a 34 or the 30 (slide or no slide) without a sweat.
a 30ft'r with slide is the heaviest thing they make on 4 wheels
and the tongue is approx the same wt (may-b more) as a 34 without slide, this largely depends on lp tank size and packing.
i prefer having 6 wheels under that much mass (and do) since there is less wt per wheel
... but the 30 slide floorplan is very nice...
the 2 big issues (imo) are...
1. which bathroom layout do u like better (split-hall or all street side)
-i actually prefer the bathroom layout in the 30/slide, but it's not available on a 34, so i have learned to like the 1 side layout.
2. travel patterns. the slide MUST be stabilizer jack supported
EVERYTIME it's used, even for a few hours.
-on long trips i often stop for a quick overnight and don't wanna mess with the slide or walk over it when not extended.
