zimm is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Back in my single days, my brother and me's setup. '03 F250, 7.3, BTS trans, tuner, 4.30 gears/locker, 6" DR lift, 37" toyos and supercharged Donzi 22 Classic. Little brother had a Ram 2500, and nitrous injected jetboat.



After selling the toys, getting married, 2 kids, and 8 years without a truck, I'm back in the game with a mellower setup.

see if you can swing through Ledges State Park in Iowa when you go through. One of Iowa's hidden little treasures. Built back in the 30's as a WPA project ... very cool. first place the wife and I (girlfriend at the time) ever camped by ourselves.

would be about a 1/2 hour Straight north of Des Moines. West of Ames, and straight south of Boone. Can swing through Saylorville lake on the way up there.

Iowa has a TON of stuff to see if you want to spend the time looking for them.

sorry .... now back to your regularly scheduled program.

nice truck.

We are already shopping. Probably going to order a F450 King Ranch later this year or early next year. We've already realized we need more truck for this 5r. It didn't take much convincing for Cindy, it was kind of her idea. It doesn't get any better than that LOL!

How are you liking yours so far?

Nice looking trailer and great floor plan.

I couldn't legally pull that down the road with that hitch weight.

That trailer loaded will weigh in at 15, 770lbs. The shipping hitch weight would put my truck over gross!!! LOL

Funny story, when we were shopping for the 5r, the deal maker for Cindy on this floor plan was first the King Bed, but more importantly it has a bar..... go figure! I was happy it has 2 AC units and we put a 5.5 Onan generator in it so we can dry camp and I can still watch direct tv. She's happy, with the living space and the bar, I'm happy with the living space and the huge kitchen; I'll be happier with a new truck but I have really enjoyed this one, but did realize it works pretty hard towing this much trailer.

I'm not saying the F450 is the be all end all, but any dually could certainly be a more stable towing platform, but the F450 has the 6.7 and they are winding up the power again to some 440 HP? The torque is up again too, that makes me happy on the hills. I just like the cabin and layout of the Ford interiors better and think the trucks look really good, add in the power, it's my choice in trucks. We are a Ford family I guess, we have 6 of them. The local dealer loves us, we bought all 5 out of the past 7 from them. I've even done customer testimonials for them. They've always treated us well.

Sorry Gigger, no sisters, she's got a bunch of brothers....

If you want a bigger truck, let the wife pick out the trailer.

That's how I ended up with the truck I have now. Climbing up to Mt. Bachelor in central Oregon with the F150 doing 25 mph helped decide getting something bigger! LOL

Actually the shipping weight is 12750, with a GVW of 15500. It is very heavy on the hitch though. I haven't weighed it yet, but I can sure feel it. The F350 as advertised by Ford is at it's max with a fifth wheel at 15000 for the 4x4. I believe I'm within legal limits, but am not comfortable being at or near max limits. I like having a 10-20% margin, I'm not getting that with this truck right now.

I'm within two years of retirement, our plans are to travel for a few years and live in the trailer/truck combo. I'll definitely want that safety margin when we start that trip. We knew that going in when we bought the trailer, this truck can haul it for now on the short trips we take, but when we start out across the lower 48, we'll be behind the wheel of a truck that gives us that sense of safety. I know I'm singing to the choir here, but In reality it all comes down to driving defensively, giving yourself enough space from the vehicle in front and watching out for the other guy. But there is no substitute for a bigger capacity truck with bigger brakes and more power!
