I have a 2021 Coachmen Class B RV on a 2020 Ford Transit 350HD with a 3.5 Ecoboost. I have been very impressed with power and milage. Took a trip to Texas and back, never lacked for power. Just set CC and goes up any hill without slowing, 10 sp trans is smooth. As far as mileage running the speed limit on flats I average 14 to 15. Head winds kill mileage 11 to 12 but I am driving a big sail. Downhill it goes way up. Below is from Jackson CA to home in Stockton CA.

This is a good video on the EcoBoost. You have to put your foot in it now and then to keep the internal waste gates from sticking. 

 

After 6 months I would recommend the 3.5 EcoBoost.

Will just throw out there that I have a 16 F150 supercab 8 foot bed with heavy duty payload package (2610 lbs) and a Grandby. I have the 5.0 motor.   Truck regularly gets 18-19 in mixed driving without camper.. can easily get over 20 on highway trips. 

 

With camper I get right around 16. I live at 6000 feet and all drives to somewhere cool involved going up and over 10000 feet. Never felt underpowered.  Once past 72 mph mpg goes south quick.

The F-150 3.5/10 speed with the aluminum body is a excellent machine. My previous F-150 with 2050 payload with bags and a Grandby 12.4 average with a load. I also tow a 3500 lb bass boat with at  mph 10.4. My current F-150 a 2020 super cab 8’ box with the 5.0/10 speed and HDP package giving a payload of 2600. This with the Grandby will average 12-14 depending without my boat. I expect mileage to drop 1-2 mph with the boat. I added Hellwig helpers only because of the added tongue weight with the boat. Both F-150’s I have owned have been more than enough truck for my usage.

My 2017 3.5/10 speed payload 2050 with bags.

2020 5.0/10 speed HDP 2600 lb payload with Hellwig helpers. 
Excellent trucks plenty of power and a great ride. Handling at speeds also excellent.

Thanks! Looks like you’re getting plenty of use out of that 150. Nice outfit!
