Any advice will be appreciated.

I am towing with a 2018 F150, same set-up as McStreamy. My AS 2019 Sport22. No complaints, more than enough power to handle the Cascades, BC and every place I have been. Since it is a 4x4, it still is "off the ground".

We tow approximately 6000 miles per year and have been from the upper coast of Maine through the Rocky Mountains the Grand Canyon's and across the plains. The 3.5 Has performed outstanding and we average between 10 and 13 miles per gallon. Our current payload capacity on the F150 is 1625 pounds We use an equalizing four weight distribution hitch and have no problem Towing at highway speeds including passing Semi trailers Or in high winds.
Curious, does your F150 have Max Tow?

I have a 2020 30 International being pulled with a 2019 Expedition Max. I was amazed on how well it pulled. Up El Cajon pass, east to Flagstaff and Albuquerque. Enjoy!

I am curious if anyone has tried the GM 3.0 Duramax turbo diesel in a GMC or Chevy? I have read great things about it. I currently own a GMC Sierra with a 5.3 L non-turbo gas engine and have not been pleased with its performance on the drive from Texas to Montana. I am pulling a 23FB FC.

Duramax 3.0

I test drove one and found the transmission smooth, ride just a little stiff. I opted for the Ford F 150 because of personal driving most of the time, nice ride and features.
