Our upgraded tow vehicle

Recommended Posts

Our “ new” 2005 Ford F 250  coupled with our re calibrated 4 tonne TE at Eyres Rock. Ford now fully converted to Qld rego and Kedron has had it’s first “ Certificate  of inspection” in Cairns. In the front battery hatch we have THREE vin plates.... BLACK. original rego Qld.....SILVER. after GTM upgrade in  Perth......BLUE. when we come back home to Gordonvale from. Qld Transport so they can take ultimate control of the operation. Very ,very sorry to see our 100series Landcruiser go. Must admit the F Truck is probably more capable at towing the heavy Kedron on & off the road but back in suberbia it’s a different kettle of fish. Moving and parking around the city must be planned beforehand and there are numerous no go areas . A..n..y..w..a..y  all for the best.

Roadrunner, you won't go wrong with the F250.

I have the 2018 F250 and just about to head off on another trip up north towing our 22'6 TE which probably goes in at around 3.8+t. Also have a current F150 which surprisingly pulls like a train but is a lot lighter than the 250. Prefer the 250 for heavy towing, the diesel just makes it very easy.

Like any yank truck it pulls it easy. I find it's just a lot less stressful towing with these big utes but I do agree it becomes a bit of an issue in cities, that's why we have smaller ones for that. Enjoy your travels.

Not for long if the A$ goes down!

Hopefully not.

But that price is line ball with what they sell for in the states compared to the F trucks and Rams.

Will be interesting to see the Camaro price as well.

All the best
