I lied, lied, lied

Under the thread new 5'er I posted that we had a 2015 Reflection 303rls towed by a 2013 F 150 ecoboost with max towing and payload. That is true temporarily but today in a moment of weakness I ordered a 2015 F 350 Lariat diesel. The F 150 was more than capable of towing the 303 but the colors didn't match don't you know. The new one is Caribou and should match much better an will be here in a couple of weeks. Pics will be added. Bride says "crazy man". Do you suppose there is any truth to it?

Congratulations on the new tow vehicle. Color matched to boot. How can the DW complain?

You will notice a substantial difference when towing with the 350. It will pull better, be more stable and generally feel much more solid.

The pushed around feeling will be gone or barely noticeable.

Just tell the DW that you don't want a quality woman like her to be riding in a mis-matched rig. You did it for her!

We're all crazy at various points in our life. Congrats on the new rig.

The bride said "Crazy Man" and you wonder if there is any truth to it... Well,,, How crazy can you be,, I mean you married her....

Good move, You said the F-150 was more than capable (I see far too many folks who think that way but are mistaken) the F-350 should have no tribble at all with that trailer... Very few Trailers are not towable by a 350 or a 350 custom.. Many would over stress a 150.

Of course.. now you can buy a bigger trailer.

Crazy or not, your going to be riding comfortably with the added stability, strength, and control.

Safe travels to you,

Finally got rig together. Some ask why we call this camping. This is our tent, we outgrew the other kind.

Ranchdog,

This guy has truck envy! I have an F150 but would luv an F350 as a grocery getter. I will stop now as I am sounding as bad as you!

Had a 40' diesel pusher for three years, decided I didn't particularly like being a bus driver and would try being a truck driver.

That's funny!

Great looking 350, and I'm sure you are enjoying pulling the 5er with it, over the 150. Do we see a larger 5er in you future?

You're in for a pleasant surprise the first time you tow in a strong crosswind. You'll hardly know the 5er is back there.
