My 2015 F-150 has that option as well. It makes the camera zoom in on the trailer hitch and makes it easier to get it lined up. Of course, I had the truck 6 months before I found THAT feature.

Last week in Jacksonville Florida. Flat land and straight roads. Looks like conditions made it too much trailer for a Superduty F250.

A 250 is not a 1/2 ton. Hard to tell what caused the accident.

Yup! My 2014 has it...great for hitching up the travel trailer or the boat!

Just bought a 2016 Ram 1500 Bighorn. It will be used to tow our 2011 Coachmen Freedom Express 230BH. Definitely room to grow with this truck.

Towing ability of these new trucks is pretty impressive. The cost......more than my house we bought 46 years ago, & the house has a boat dock.

Nice rig...beautiful place to park it. I presume it's a sunset.

We need to go there.

I found and printed the sheets for WDH but haven't tried to adjust it yet. It was at the dealer for a few warranty issues after our big trip, just pulled it home and parked it in storage lot.

Think it's going away in favor of a 30-33' 5th wheel with 2 A/Cs. Just too miserable with 1 on a 95+ degree day! Don't want to limit where and when we can travel. If we change trailers might as well get a 5er that's easier to hook/unhook and hopefully has auto level. Getting old and fat...setting up at the end of a travel day in 100 deg. is not fun any more!

Are you keeping the F150?
