2012 F 150 XLT, max tow, HD with 6.5' bed. Payload is 2450 I'm enjoying this truck. Noticed the manual said not to use cruise while towing?

take pictures, save them to a folder on your computer, upload them to photobucket, copy the 'direct link' and paste it into the form on the web site.

Very nice !! I really don't know how the other manufacturer's can compete with these new F-150's, they are really something else with the ecoboost and there 3/4 ton like capacities. Congrats on your new truck.

We sold our old TT, so starting to look for TT's around 28-30' and not over 8000 lbs.
