I am a newbie as well and I bought the cart before the horse. What I mean is I bought a 1988 34' Limited Airstream back in November. I started looking for a vehicle to tow it, and having owned Ford before I looked at the F series.
As luck would have it I went to a large Ford dealer and got an unbelievable deal on an F-350 6.4L diesel. I have been driving this truck since the beginning of December, and thinking I bought too much truck. Well today, that changed dramatically, as I towed my trailer for the first time. I hooked up, adjusted the hitch, adjusted the brake controller, and off I went. I am so thankful that I bought that truck! It towed the limited without a grunt, The trailer followed just beautifully, and I was in full control, brakes and all.
I can't wait to get going in the spring!
