Our new 8 x 20 Pace American Summit and 11 month old 2003 F-150 supercrew. No lettering on the trailer as of yet. Just magnetics on the truck it self.

Nice trailer, how does the 150 pull it?

Time for a 3/4 or one ton truck, that half ton is too small for that trailer.

Yeah, I had to go from a 1500 GMC to an F250 super duty gas motor to pull my 7x18 enclosed. Good luck, but I hope you tried pulling it loaded before you decided.

It pull's nice no problems, ya know south Florida nice and flat. now if I lived in a hilly area then that would be another story.

I actually have my eye on a used Isuzu NPR dump body.

Mr Marc, It really doesnt mtter if your area is flat or not . I live in a flat area as well but people drive crazy around here and if you have to stop really fast that trailer will push that half ton into someone else. The reason I say a 3/4 or 1 ton is better is that they are heavier trucks with bigger brakes, elec systems ect. Anyways, good luck w/ your rig .

properly adjusted surge brakes on the trailer will stop the truck.
Don't have experience with electric trailer brakes.

I pull a 7X16 Enclosed with a 99 Dodge 360 Engine on a daily basics been doing this for this season, the truck gets about 8 mpg. and is beggin for mursey, cant handle the weight from the trailer when loaded and pulls fine at speeds of 55 to maybe 60 anything more you can watch the gas hand drop and rpms are up on 3000. Half tons will pull it but not good and not for long before stuff starts breaking. Get a 3/4 ton or one ton.

Ok so I ran with the 150 for 3 weeks or so. I did notice that it was strugguling. Stopping was a little longer than expected even with electric brakes. So I say to self time for a new puller.
But what would i get for my 2003 F-150 Supercrew 7,000 miles. Answer alot more than I expected.

1st dealer 11,500.00 towards a used 2003 13,000 Miles F250 SD 5.4L

2nd dealer 13,260.00 towards a new 2003 F250 SD 5.4L Extended Cab.

3rd dealer 21,500.00 towards new 2003 F250 SD extended cab 5.4L I have been a loyal customer at my old dealership 5 buys in the last 4.5 years. Not anymore. I have found a new home and as a result of highway construction I got a great deal as well as free oil changes for one year.

Thanks everyone who made me think 3/4 Ton.

Marc...... you said that your summit was a 8.5 width?? I was informed that the summit only came in a 8' width?? Btw how do you like the trailer?? I was going to buy a Pace "Pursuit" and add the floor and vents and stoneguard, but the base price for the summit is only $100 more than the Pursuit and it come standard with all those features.

As a matter of fact I had to bring in the wife's Explorer to have a window motor fixed, and he happend to see her drive in with me behind her in the 250 What a look he gave me. I think his jaw hit the floor especially after he looked at the other dealers sticker on the rear. I had nothing to say. Just a big grin!
