Supercrews are very nice.
On the down-side, if you want to haul
big things (like a few 2x4 or 4x8 sheet
of anything) the bed is too short.
Another downside -most of the
Supercrews have the center console-
pretty dumb, given that it
takes away the ability to
seat 6. The 4-door Japanese trucks
feel small and ride like wagons. (And
I'm not talkin' about station wagons)
The Dodge has a great engine, but the
finishing details lack. The same
comments for the Chevrolet, but no
For creature comforts, -Lariat.
The big V-8 is a must. If you want gas-
milage, may I suggest a Honda Insight?
I PURCHASED MY F-150 IN 9-2002 AND
IMMEDIATELY STARTED PULLING MY 7000 LB
5TH WHEEL CAMPER. THE FIRST TIME I
HOOKED UP THE TRUCK HAD 80 MILES ON IT.
I PULL THIS CAMPER ON AVERAGE 85 MILES
TO MY FAVORITE CAMPGROUND. I HAVE
NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH MY TRUCK IT
HAS RAN AND PULLED FLAWLESSLY. I
AVERAGE 18 MPG WHEN I JUST DRIVE AND
ABOUT 13 WHEN PULLING MY FIFTH WHEEL.
THIS TRUCK HAS BEEN PERFECT WITH PLENTY
OF POWER, I HAVE NO PROBLEM RUNNING 75
MPH DOWN THE INTERSTATE WHILE TOWING
