  1. There is nothing left from the diamondback when I remove the HD from our truck. The center panel connects with 4 clamps, which are easy to take off. It just connects to the factory bed rails that your F-series has too.
  2. We have the Diamondback HD as well -- we did the Crossbin 8 (smaller one) with the two sideboxes. Ours has the black coating. One sidebox has a my water stuff (zero G hose, regulator, filter) so that other stuff doesn't get them dirty. The other sidebox has my POL (grease gun, generator oil, etc... that I don't want on the rest of my stuff. The front box has tools, pop up cones, and some of the small parts for stuff. I still have full length use of the bed, or even room for some of the extended Diesel tanks. I can remove the whole cover in about 15 minutes, by myself if I have

  4. There are many Olivers in the PNW. It is a great camper for the NW as it's pretty immune to humidity and moisture - at least structurally. We'll be out on the peninsula a few times this fall/winter.
  5. Water can get there, but if you manage humidity in the Oliver it isn't a problem. I've showered sitting down on the closed toilet and it hasn't been an issue.
  6. 2021 F150 configurator is online: https://shop.ford.com/build/f150/2021/#/config/Config[|Ford|F-150|2021|1|1.|301A.W1E..YZ...XLT.54Y.AWD.998.CCAB.471.RETAIL.627.55A.43B.SS6.]
  7. That’s no good. From my searches of fomoco products, if it doesn’t have the pro trailer backup assist knob, it probably doesn’t have the tow package. Whether it be f150, expedition, or navigator. Rather than relying on dealer descriptions, I just looked at every car’s pictures to verify the options I wanted. Then confirmed with Ford ETIS build sheets. I would see what the 2021 trucks have. Either it will be compelling or the 2019/2020s on lots will be heavily discounted. That or find the HDPP unicorn. Trust car salespeople as far as you can throw them.
  8. It has my interest, but I worry about payload - the HDPP is not available with the Hybrid. Also, generally hybrids don't see much, if any gains from their hybrid powertrain at freeway speeds. Some will do better, but it's usually the low rolling resistance tires and improved aero they add to hybrid models that help. Our Prius Prime would do great in town at 55-65 MPG, but on the freeway it was more in the 40s, especially when the speed limit hits 80. The other downside is the smaller tank on the hybrid F150 (30 vs 36 gallon). Here's my build for a 2021 F150 -- should sticker around
  9. I've had three ecoboost vehicles, and would prefer that over a V8. The f150 with the HDPP (heavy duty payload package) and ecoboost would be my pick for a gas TV. Only downside is the HDPP is rare, and it generally excludes many of the other safety features like blindspot monitoring. For 2021, that's no longer the case, but the 2021s are not available on the used market yet 🙂. Some say turbos are unreliable, but they are generally quieter than a v8. Hidden in my answer: the TV that won't struggle in the mountains has forced induction. We crossed a few 9000+ foot passes in the last few
  10. It would have been an ideal platform for my old circumstance for sure. Smallest thing that looks like it'd tow the LE2 that I've seen.
  11. One of the rooftop tents like a Tepui would be the next best thing in my mind. That or an actual camper on a dually or a toterhome.
  12. I looked at the leaked order guide - actually XLT Mid (301A) can be optioned pretty well: HDPP 360 camera adaptive cruise with lane centering evasive steering assist blind spot with trailer/rear cross traffic wireless carplay/sync 4 auto climate control That just about checks all my boxes. It'd be a custom order of course. The only sad part are the lay flat seats are King Ranch or higher. The had to make many of those safety features into lower trims, since the next Tundra will probably come with it all in base trim.
  13. Yes, especially if for 2021 they let you get all the safety features along with the Heavy Duty Payload Package (which they currently don't due to trim restrictions on HDPP). Not many of the 1/2 trucks have enough payload for 250 lbs of fuel while being able to carry much else.
  14. I had my wires crossed - TransferFlow makes the extended gas tank: https://www.transferflow.com/shop/product/0800116947
  15. One more thing, with the Navigator I ran out of rear axle weight before I ran out of payload. Thread that covers my trip to the scales here.
