I have been pulling an 02 Wildcat 28BH up and down the coast to Canada (my family) and out west to Houma LA where my wife has family, average about 12.7mph @ 74mph, and when we are cruising at 85mph with trailer it gets about 11.5mph. The combined weight of trailer, kids, cargo, fuel and accessories comes in at approx 22k combined. Need to get the Transfer flow 100gallon tank to assist with the trips to Canada, diesel is running about $1.01 a litre or $3.82CAD a US gallon

Not to judge but 85mph with 22k is a bit fast! I hate being the weight or speed police but occasionaly I cann't help it!

Yukon, like I said before the wifey just doesn't understand that you have to jump on a good deal when you find one, lol (that how I end up with two last summer anyway)! Yep, the one we looked at was the full living room/kitchen in the back and single bed up on top with the 16ft slideout. The price around here in ND is usually up towards $10k-$12k on a unit like that, simmilar to what you guys get over there. Nice camper though!

The TT Boat combo isn't bad but you have to be particular about how you have things set up. This is the second rig I've done it with and haven't had any probelms but I try not to push the envolope either, I usually keep it right around 60-65mph and only touch 70mph every now and again when I'm not watching the speedo and the right foot gets a little heavy, lol!

I have one of those and it's one of the best investments I have ever made. I love going 1500 miles before having to fill up!

Kwikkordead, how much would I be looking at for the Transfer flow tank, just started looking into it but no one seems willing to part with pricing information until you sign the dotted line.

SLE, the cruise at 85mph is easy to do when you get in with the semi's up and down I-81 to Canada, have cobra radar and twin whips with Galaxy radio to talk with Big brothers, but overall this speed is reserved for 1am-5am when everyone else is asleep or off the interstate. Normal cruising speed is at 74mph.

Regards

How much that thing weigh? how well does it tow that? Looks like a big trailer for my 4.2L but if your truck can tow it so can mine.

Prices are at the bottom of the page. Note that the 98 gallon tank requires the 8 foot bed. Short beds; there is not enough room between the front of the fenderwells and the front of the bed.

It's a 1990 F-250HD XLT Lariat, 4x4, 460/ZF5spd. Only paid $700, needs a clutch and a water pump, but has no title. I am gonna use it for parts, and put the 5spd in my 85. It runs awesome, hate to part it but not much choice.

The fifth wheel is listed from the factory at just under 4200 lbs. dry. (empty tanks, no cargo.) As for how it tows with the B4000, nice and smooth. flats and gentle hills, accelerates very good, holds speed just fine. Steeper grades (6-12%) it seems to do best leaving it in drive, letting the tranny hold 2nd on its own with the torque converter engaged. just let the motor work, 20 mph probably. I am never in a hurry when I tow, so I never push it. If I shift into second manually, the torque converter seems to lock up, it bogs, forces a downshift to regain momentum, and then back to second. So i have learned to keep it in drive,def. NOT OD, it likes it much better. If I am doing a steep climb from a stop, put it in 1st, bring it up to 3000 rpms and let it sit there til the top. Last trip I had to climb a 2 mile hill here in western , MA on Rte. 23, its a turn sharper than 90 degrees onto the bottom of a 6% climb for 1.5-2 miles, got up to 40 mph ok and then backed off.

The pic in my gallery of the 4.2 F150 towing the coachman we can only guess, as NADA doesnt go back that far, and can't find any of the liturature on it. But he said it felt quite a bit heavier than the 3195 lb. sunline he towed ( in the other gallery pic) but quite manageable. And it has to be lighter than my Fifth wheel. It was towed with a 1992 explorer eddie bauer prior to that truck. So I figure that one to be around 3500 lbs.

I pull a 30 ft 5th wheel that weighs 10,000 with my 03 PS and it does a good job.

Well, the moderator said I couldn't post until 30 seconds went by. So I waited and posted. Sorry about the double post.
