lemay said:Hello I am new to this forum. My husband and I are from Minnesota. We have a Cherokee 28dd trailer and we tow it with a Ford F150, 5.4 engine and a 3.55 dif. We plan on trying to see as much of the USA as we can over the next few years.

I hate to start out by throwing a damper on things, but are you sure you have enough truck for that trailer? You've got a light duty truck with a fairly economical drivetrain.? Ford rates that combination at around maximum of about 8000 lbs, give or take a bit depending on cab style, bed length, etc.? With a 28 foot trailer, the gear you want for fun as well as every day living plus the passengers in the truck, you may well be close to that limit.? If you plan on extensive traveling, you will find an F250 to be a much sturdier vehicle for trailer towing.
