    Finally got the beast home today and am looking forward to using it this season. Have some work to do on it, like putting in a shelf or two in the V, putting up the trimmer racks, painting the walls, etc.

    I'll get pics ASAP, won't be logo'd yet though.

    (your opinion) do you think a f150 can handle a 7x14 enclosed like you just got

    I have a silverado 1500 that handles my 8.5x20 enclosed. But it has the 6.0 in it and Iv upgraded the hitch.

    Pro-turf I am running a Dakota with 4.7 V8 on mine. I am not going to break any acceleration records but for the short distances I have to go, it will work.
    I imagine going into a stiff wind my truck will work some.

    Cross winds on a highway will get ya. Just be really careful the first time you tow it 65+ mph on a windy day.

    I'd think So. I'm looking for one similar for my F-150 and 7'x14' trailers are in the towing range for it.

    Just going to be a bit doggy, but no problems over-all.

    Yep,

    Headwind/tailwind is just a HP and speed difference. Side winds can make little trucks have issues. Tail wagging the dog situation.

    I guess anyone towing enclosed trailers should know the biggest worry is when you are towing is the side winds. If you are crusing along 60mph going from trees on the side of you to a open field the side wind will snap the truck in that direction really quick.

    Here is one pic of the exterior - showing the 48" ramp door on the side. Plan on using that one for my PG and 36" WB.
    (No I didn't hit my garage, though my neighbors gave me krap for backing so close:)
