    Buying jayco jayflight 32bhds 2014. Have ford f-150 supercrew v8 5.4L. With 3.15 RAR. Tow guide says tow max 8500 lbs. camper weight is listed as aprox. 8250 lbs.
    Some suggest adding air lift bags to. Suspension. Some say upgrade rear end axle ratio to 3.75 for 1100 lbs. capacity. Finally others say go to f250 super duty. Confused!

    Is the 8250 ULW? What is the loaded weight? Either way you are pushing your limit. IMO I would go with a F250. Where will you be towing? Short weekends, mountains or long hauls? Welcome to the forum.

    X2...By the time you have the RV loaded you would be overweight big time. Time for a new TV. Then...might as well get a diesel :)

    New truck time, for sure. You want to tow the trailer - not have the trailer pushing you.
