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!

-Mark
Your 07 has better weight limits than my 04.

We are also a couple years from retiring. Haven't decided to go bigger, or not. We only plan to travel the first year, then home and regional camping from then on. Bigger doesn't always fit where we love to go!

But we do love the Montanas

I was able to do what every Ford dreams of. Its a 94 Impala SS concept, not sure on the details but something about the red badge and lack of rear seat logos make it so. Not sure whats wrong with it other than being a Chevy. Towed about 40 miles and boy did the V10 Sing. Some of you may know renton, well my wifes phone navigation seems to get us lost every time and took me up the steepest hill in Renton 900 when we needed to go from woodinville to covington. Learned a bit about the truck and how it handles, need a sg2 for sure and to adjust the trailer brakes possibly diagnose them as well since they would cut out intermittently. Obviously it wasn't hooked up with it on the trailer since I was headed the Lake for the day and this was added on to the fun. First time towing something this heavy as well. Any way on to the pics

WinterPeg has some of the nastiest streets in Canada. Huge pot holes everywhere. My trucks are jacked for the "Urband Off roading". Saw a early 90s 150 on the street with rear passenger wheel completely broke off. Two weeks ago another similar 150 had my entire street caution taped off due to the fuel tank falling off spilling fuel all over the street. My 150 has seen the back of a flat deck when diff cover split in half. Is there something in commom here??

Nice video. Yes the wheel broke off on St James street. I refuse to drive up that street with trailer. Would crack a leaf spring or worse.

Hey Mike, I guess that 5'er was too "BIG" a COUNTRY for that 1/2 ton small block
At least he knows it & didn't even bother taking the topper off
