    Hi Kevin, your coach will pull the F-150 without issue. In fact, we’ve towed an F-150 for about the last 6 years. Our first coach was a Tiffin Phaeton with the same Allison 3000, but with a Cummins ISC 380. Our current coach is an Aspire with the ISL9 450 and Allison 3000.

    In either case, you only know the Pickup is behind the coach on a long grade.

    Personally, I like the versatility of the F-150, and the comfort. Periodically, we will load a gold cart in the bed.

    With regard to towing equipment, we currently use a Demco Excalibar, Blue Ox baseplate, a Roadmaster Brake system, and basic diode light kit.

    If I was starting from scratch, I would use the Ready Brute Elite towbar and braking system.

    I hope this helps.

    Matt D, I was reading a thread on macerators and noticed you pull a 2015 F-150 behind your Entegra. We have an Aspire 38M with a 450 Cummins, and a 2015 F-150 (aluminum). We are hitting the road this summer and I have debated about getting something smaller to pull. What has been your experience towing your pickup? Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated.
