2nd Trip with the F-250 - The Right Choice For Us!
Just wrapped up an 1,100 mile round trip out to the Davis Mountains in west TX and back to the Houston TX area. I am even more convinced moving from a F-150 to a F-250 was the right choice. Winds were a non-issue headed west, but when we returned a week later, we had 20-30 mph cross winds coming across wide open west TX. At no point did it ever feel like the trailer was driving the truck. I have towed in far less winds with our F-150 where the trailer pushed the truck around significantly. I have seen many, many posts concerning who's truck is bigger or how you can tow with any TV that has the proper ratings. I don't argue this in anyway, our F-150 was within all mfg limits and it got the job done. But I will say, at least in our case, I have never been more comfortable towing than our current setup with the F-250. If you are comfortable with your 1/2 ton or suv, stick with it. If you have some concerns and are considering an upgrade to a 3/4 ton or even 1 ton, do it, and I hope you see the same confidence inspiring difference we did.
