Yesterday we retired the Expedition as our tow vehicle and brought home a 2010 Ford F-150 Super Crew King Ranch. Max tow rating is 9500 pounds which provides 900 pounds more of capacity and best of all, we can carry the generator and gas cans, etc., in the bed of the truck. We still need to get a tonneau cover. The truck was used with 7000 miles on it so the savings over the MSRP were substantial. The truck has the 157 inch wheelbase so with the Equalizer, towing the North Trail should be a breeze. Loaded weight on the NT is 6900 pounds. One thing we've noticed is that the turning radius is much different on the F-150 so we have some "relearning" to do.
The NT is at the dealer for a couple of minor warranty items and for the dealer to look it over for roof issues or whatever before winter. Now we need to call the dealer and tell them the Equalizer will need to be adjusted prior to bringing the NT home.
Santa came early to our house this year.
