    I just pulled a 3800lb 22ft TT about 500 miles. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    Oh, have a bigger cooler put on it.

    I've went camping 5 different times with it all ready and the truck towed it great except for the last time when there was 30 plus mile an hour wind. You can feel the weight behind you but you can still cruise at 65 all day without being nervous

    OP, I didn't notice earlier you have the S/C. I'm sure that helps quite a bit.

    If you have the towing package and a brake controller you will be fine!!!

    I have always been able to do the speedlimit without a problem including crossing the Appalachian mountains. My camper is 4700 pounds dry, probably 5500-6000 pounds loaded. I have towed thousands of miles. MPG sucks, but it is not much different than it was in my 5.4 liter F-150.
