Bought this monster F250 to pull the Airstream. A 97 Diesel. It rode " like a truck" and was hard to handle.
Sold it and found a V10 Excursion. Ahhh, what a nice ride! Like a living room on wheels, and tows the 31 footer easily.
Everyone remarks when they see the V10 lable on my front fenders. "Must suck gas like crazy!"
Truth is the 10 gets better mileage than a V-8, and almost the ame as a diesel with less expense to purchase. We get about 16-18 mpg unloaded highway, and still. get 12-14 towing.
This thing rides like a truck!! Really. Not sure how long I wll be able to put up with the hard ride and the huge turning radius.....
