Any one tow this TT or one similar as far as length and weight with a 6.2l 3:73 F250 CCSB 4x4? Anything special needed as far as a hitch goes? Thanks in advance.

That will be a LOT of trailer for an F250 gas. As long as you don't have to do mountain passes you should be ok.

i have a 2017 ford f250 2wd 6.2 gasser 3:73 rear end. our current TT when bought last fall is a 2019 keystone laredo 330rl. similar floor plan, length, "dry" weight (we are approx 10k lbs loaded to camp).

i have had zero problems with this setup. thousands of miles. up and down the east coast. we live in north carolina. DW and i just got back from 8 day trip in the tennessee and nc mountains. interstate driving and winding small steep mountain roads.

plenty of truck for the rig. anything over 10k loaded to camp i would go diesel.

downside. 8 to 9 mph towing but gas is way cheaper than diesel in my part of the country.

fuel stops. 38ft TT is loooong. i usually plan ahead for larger truck stops etc.

our hitch is a ezlift old style with spring bars and 1 sway bar that came with our previous TT. this TT is very stable towing.

on a side note. be aware that keystone still uses slide motors that can leak oil on top of the slide roof when retracted. causes membrane to bubble up. i found out this last week when i did a roof inspection. 2 0f my 3 have done this. took 9 months to start leaking. their fix is a drip pan underneath motor. common problem that i knew nothing about until i google searched.

other than that we have loved it. great floor plan similar to yours. our first TT was a 33ft, one slide

Although you are close or at your limits for towing such a sizable TT, I think you should be fine for the most part as long as you do not mind letting the gasser roar when traversing through the mountains. We have a similar setup but have a Chevy Silverado crewcab with 6 liter and 410s, we tow a long TT toyhauler when loaded with toys and water exceeds 10K# easily.

We already live at nearly 6K elevation and do most of RVing above 7.5K, for well over a decade it has done the job on mountain passes, and tows great at lower elevations and predominately flat roads. Have many awesome times in your beautiful new TT, definitely great for those bad weather days we all experience when RVing. Just a great floorplan, spacious and well thought out.

good point on bad weather days. living in nc we can enjoy weekend trips in the winter. its nice to have the extra space when its cold outside, extremely hot, or raining. part of the reason to have a TT is not only enjoying the outdoors but simply getting away and relaxing.
