A lot of nice rigs on here. I don't tow anything like that. I just have my little bike trailer. Maybe 5K loaded. I haven't towed it with the 6.2 yet, but I'm guessing it won't be a problem.

Back with the swather for another 800 mile trip. Didn't like the fuel mileage trying to go 75 so I maintained 65mph with a couple 2nd gear downshifts too 6.000+ RPM which will get ya 62 mph. Average gas mileage 5-6 mpg. 11'8" wide 12' tall. Figure combined weight at 18000-19000 lbs.

Then yesterday did a 570 mile trip about brought this drill back, at about 21 feet wide. Speed was only 35-45 mph and averaged 5-6 mpg.

Nice setup RAPR! Looks like a good way to exercise the 6.2L.

thanks. I was helping out my uncle that was about to try and pull this thing with his 2011 1500 Silverado (4.8L) w/o electric brakes installed. I didn't see that as a good idea, considering the trip was on the interstate going over a hi-rise bridge. Even with my 3.73 gears and 35" tires, it didn't give the 6.2L any trouble.

Went for a little 18 mile test run today, I'll be heading out of town next week and didn't want any surprises. The TBC set up is the nicest, smoothest unit I've ever used. I like the ability to name the trailer and the best part, it records trailer mileage. I kept a book with my last car trailer and it was always a bit of hassle to remember to write the miles down. Thought I was the only nut ball that cared about that. The tow/haul mode seems nice too. I can hardly wait for next weekend now.

Truck has been doing great lately!

Seems like it likes towing heavier loads...Skids, dump trailers, you name it. No problems in the past 5k miles. The dealer finally has everything worked out!

I love this truck

We bought a new 2011 F-250 Lariat Crew Cab short box with the 6.2L and 3.73s in December (gotta love those year old new trucks that the dealer is dumping!). Didn't plan on buying a camper, but in May we bought a 2012 Chapparal 345 BHS fifth wheel by Coachman. Sticker says 10640 dry for the camper, probably right at 12000 with all the stuff for the kids and wife. Haven't weighed it yet, but I am quite curious. Camper is 37' 4", and bumper to bumper the rig is 53' 1" long. Pulling that camper in Hampton Roads, VA traffic on the three trips we have been on so far I have kept it right around 10 mpg. I don't really change how I drive with the camper on. Foot on the floor when getting up to speed, and cruising at around 70. I am very impressed with how well this truck pulls right at the Ford rated trailer weight. The TBC is far and away the easiest I have ever used. The only thing I don't like is how much squat the 1900 lb pin weight on the trailer gives the truck. Rear airbags in October will fix that problem! Had quite a bit of porpoising, but I put a set of airbags in the front coils and got rid of that after the first trip. That will scare the hell out of you at 60 mph when the front and rear end are stretched out because the trailer is bucking!

Driving a 1992 F-250 Scab, 460 eng with 80000 mi. that has earned the right to retire. Going crazy trying to figure out what to replace her with, so glad all have posted so much info here. Thanks to all of you. Tow 265RKSS Jayco Eagle 5er, we estimate under 8800 lbs loaded, but are planning on getting an exact weight this week just to be sure. Feeling really comfortable looking at the F-250 with the 6.2L & 3.73. Now if we can find one in a Scab with a long box we'll be broke but happy.

That would work just wonderful for you. No need for 4.30's with that weight unless you plan on pulling in the mountains all the time. May as well reap the benifits of the better mileage of the 3.73's if you can. Good luck with your search.
Oh and welcome to FTE!!!
