Hello there,

We are a husband/wife team with a 2.5 year old and a 2 month old. We are looking at going full time in a Highland Ridge travel trailer.

We have a 2016 F150 xlt 3.5l ecoboost with 4x4, 3.55 rear axle and tow package.

We are looking for any/all real world advice on trailers our truck can handle.

Thank you!

Welcome to the Forum! Sounds like a ton of fun to be had with your two little ones. I'm sure someone will chime in soon with some advice on a trailer. In the mean time, look at the tags for people who post here and make yourself a list. Once you have enough posts, (5 I think) you can pm them to have private contact too. Give them kids a Huge Hug! They're only little for a short time. Enjoy!

Welcome to the forum. :Helo

As you can see we own a Roamer RLS TT. Not the floor plan for you & family. We are Roamer fans. My recommendation - of course. As all the Open Range models are well built as they can be in the RV industry world, the Roamer for us was a better choice. We took a trip this spring up and down the VA, WVA & PA mountains. I set the cruise control to 60 mph and never slowed down & all gauges read normal. We use a BlueOx Sway Pro 1500. Did add a set of Timbrens. They really helped out with the weight distribution. Best wishes on your selection and God Bless you and the family. Safe Travels.....David
