    It’s a truck it needs to do truck things. Long camping trips pulling my 5th wheel around Michigan, down south or out west is a requirement. I’d spend the trips charging batteries. Looks like it would handle pulling the car or wood hauler around locally so that good.

    Most people don’t use their trucks as “trucks” so I’ll work great as a pavement pounder.

    I love how all the Libs are on the EV kick because it’s “environmentally friendly” and clean, but ignore the mining process of lithium and cobalt that are required to make these batteries. Came across this interesting article on the mining of cobalt which a majority of it is mined in Congo in Africa. Does Bill Ford know about these kids and what are his thoughts on it?

    Not that many pulling 5th wheels, but MANY pulling 30ft bumper pull travel trailers. It seems like 50% of all tow rigs at campgrounds seem to F-150's.

    You would be surprised how many ECO boost F150s I see pulling 30-35’ light weight 5th wheels. Pin weight is the biggest issue but most people don’t pay attention to that. One time I talked to a guy pulling a 38’ toy hauler. He claimed it pulled fine till he hit the hills around West Branch, I have my doubts.

    I would imagine they will just put a speaker back there and just loop the sounds of a revving engine.
