I have an '06 4.4L towing a '99 Maristar 210VRS and the boat is always loaded to the gills. Love it. Tows great, it barely knows the boat's back there. I am however only a couple of miles from the ramp. My max distance is the ~20 miles to put the boat away and get it from winter storage.

Nice! The only thing I noticed on my 6 hour trip home with the boat was the gas gauge moving faster. It averaged 11mpg the whole way back, but I would assume that is similar to other V8 truck based platforms when towing. I am going to do some slotted rotors and better brake pads this spring, since my trailer does not have brakes. Other than that, Im good to go. 4-wheel self leveling suspension works great, the factory trailer wiring is awesome, and it still drives like a BMW. I am thinking of upgrading to the turbo diesel X5 in a few years when they drop into my price point too.
