2) I'll be towing with a 2015 F-150 Supercrew 3.5 turbo and the Max tow package. It looks like this trailer has a gross weight of 7500 lbs. My trucks has a max trailer weight rating of 11,700 so I think I'm good but I'd welcome any feedback/advice from anyone towing a similar size weight/size trailer.
I'm an RV greenhorn. Be gentle. Thank you.
#1... like almost all trailers, it depends on which day of the week it was built and what they were smoking that day. Mine is pretty solid but I have found a few minor glitches.
#2 I think you will be fine if you truck is rated that high... no problem. Get the right hitch and use it properly. Be careful backing up, turning corners, and pulling into gas stations. Watch out for distracted teenage drivers who run the red light while adjusting the radio.
