That's a sharp looking truck. I also like the all white.

I tow my 32' with my 5.4 with no problems with OD off. 7500# plus trailer weight. Get right at 10 mpg towing.

Can run 80 no problems on the highway, just takes a bit more to get there. Mountians are even no problem as long as you maintain a good speed. Runs best above 70. At 65, it seems to be a dead spot taking alot of throttle work to maintain speed.

You should be fine then... a 32 fountain is the same size as a 28 Cig.
