Not too surprising it was a "little sketchy on the highway". The trailer begs for the 'Burb to be a bit farther forward for better weight bias on the trailer, but the F150 suspension didn't like that much on the hitch.

BTDT, there's been times I wished for a WDH on my similar utility trailer.

Glad you found a tolerable compromise and got 'er home safely! (y)
Yep kinda had to find the middle ground with weight distribution and suspension. Luckily only tow it twice a year!

I never go anywhere in my new F150 Lightning without this:

...it tows it just fine!
My coworker just got a Lightning. I told him to call me when he runs out of juice and I'll tow it and charge it up at the same time with my PB! :ROFLMAO:

Just had my trailer bearings repacked, brakes checked and had its tires changed before we put it away into storage so that it was ready to go in spring. Despite good tread, replace trailer tires every 5 years - I only use Goodyear brand trailer tires (there are a couple other brands that I would trust but it ain't many). Seen too many blown tires and failed bearings (including on fire) even within the small group we travel with to take any risks.

2019 Jayco 26.5RL, 30ft, 7200lbs load. I am well inside specs for the truck but this is likely the limit of my relaxed comfort level - personal choice not what can be safely done.

I would like to hear more about your set up and how well it tows? What have you done to the rear, airbags? The Michelins don't look like 10ply E load tires?

I’m considering this 221MSL as well. Do you have the max tow package? What’s your mpg and overall thoughts on the Ember?

No on max tow, just tow package.. we average 10mpg…65-70mph with elevation gains and losses. We love our ember. Perfect for us and the variety of camping we plan on doing.

Well I haven't had a chance to hook a trailer to my new '23 F150 yet, but I will be towing my '89 Mustang hatch shortly. Honestly hoping letting my faithful 20 year old Yukon go wasn't a mistake.
