Just a thread to see what everyone's up to on the usual or even on occasions. We all know the F150 Diesel will be a hauling machine, so I was wondering what do you have in the bed or are you tugging along the roadways?

On the occasion I may have an engine in the back of mine when I get it, Can't wait to be able to have ample space and something cool to haul my boat with. Not the type to really fill up with Dirt/Sand and I'm not a contractor so I won't have vast amounts of tools in there.

What about you?

Personally I don't right now. At most it will be used for storing anything extra I need for trips up to the cottage.
With SUV's becoming less and less truck based, its my main reason for getting an actual truck. Still can't accept the idea of owning an Expedition or something similar.

I think a bed should be bed-lined regardless if you use it as a hauler or not. Unless that bed isn't used at all for some reason. If you have people that occasionally jump in the back there, or you occasionally put boxes or something in there, bed-line it.

Mostly towing our travel trailer. It's an Aerolite 282DBHS. Dry weight is about 6,200 lbs and hitch weight is almost 900 lbs. Unfortunately, the HDPP is not available with the Powerstroke F-150. Like most of these 1/2 trucks, I'll be limited on payload way before I reach my towing capacity limits. It shouldn't be a huge deal...we'll just throw all our gear in the back of the trailer rather than the bed of the truck.

I tow regularly. 19 foot walleye boat, 12 foot box trailer, , utility trailer, 27 foot Boston Whaler Conquest (short distance)... I have a 3 horse trailer, but I make my daugher tow it with my old Tundra - I don't want my new truck smelling like a horse barn.

I tow an 18' lowboy trailer and a New Holland Boomer 35, usually from Southeast Michigan to Michigan's upper peninsula - never weighs in more than 7500 lbs or so. I only make that trip maybe 3-4 times a year. Twice a year I tow my 22' pontoon - tow it from my barn to the lake, then in the fall, back to the barn from the lake. (I tow it a whopping 4 miles each trip) I also tow a Lang Original 60 smoker (only 1300 lbs) on weekends that I cook out.

New guy here. My first post. Haven't purchased the 2019 KR yet, but probably will next week. This is the only thing that concerns me. Pulling a 25' Airstream, probably close to the same gross as yours. On flat land no sweat, it's climbing the mountains in Idaho, Montana and Oregon that have me a little concerned.............and the payload capacity of the truck after hooking up. I'll be very interested to hear how it works out for you jcav.
