Congrats on the new truck too... you'll be glad you have the training wheels.

I bought a slightly used Ford 2011 F350 dually diesel King Ranch edition and it is absolutely grand!

Pulls like anything and you can even chirp all four rear tires pulling
out of my driveway ... okay might be a bit of gravel to help loosen up
those rears!


I'm glad to see someone else has as good of taste as me that's a good looking truck now if you want it on steroids just let me know and I'll set you up like mine

I am also a sailor ... catamarans: Hobie 18, Hobie 16 and Freestyle 474.

Yowzers! Funky back end ... but I was kinda hoping to use the truck as a truck! Need to haul the garbage to the dump, firewood and all that stuff the rest of the year when we are not 5th wheeling!

New to this this stuff ... last camping trailer I hauled was a tent trailer behind my 1979 Buick LeSabre a few years ago. Sort of like maybe 30 years ago?

Does that big-a$$ wing help you fly down the road?! I assume it is to cut the wind resistance and force it up and over the trailer?

Ian

I built the hauler body becauseI also use my truck as a truck I can do everything you mentioned and then some and yes the wing is to help with wind resistance but it only helps on some trailers.

Does the wing help keep the bugs off the trailer?

Yes it helps keep the bugs off of the trailer but when i pulled my Montana it hurt my fuel mileage, I don't know how it will effect my mileage with the Redwood.

If It'd keep those pesky bugs off and help with the mileage a little, it might be worth it. I might try to find someone that can put the 3M film on the front of the trailer.

Dave I had the Trident coating put on my unit this past weekend. It is suppose to help to keep the rig protected and make it easier to clean off bugs on the front. Will see - it comes with an 8 year warranty. I can tell you that when we picked it up, the surface was like glass and the pollen was attracted to the sides do to static electricity.
