They won't handle much different than a camper, other than being able to move the weight around inside the trailer. Lots of people out there towing some big campers to! You shouldn't have any problem handling a nice sized enclosed trailer.

Depends on the size of my trailer, i will probably be over 10,000 lbs.

Metallitera, Thats a nice setup. I had the same truck. What do you haul in that trailer?

i was hauling around my 52' horse trailer (40K lbs loaded) with my 97. put over 100K miles on it in a year, truck was 100% stock and hauled it fine... had to drive the piss out of it in the mountins... didnt go up them at 100 MPH. in the rockies i got down to 20 MPH sometimes but i wasnt the slowest. only thing that it was hard on was the rear suspension... kept breaking rear leafs...

keepin EGTs between 1100-1150 on hills. adjust your foot to krrp EGTs there, forget the speedometer. at the peak of the hill keep your foot in it like that till you get back to 70MPH and then they drop back to about 800-900 while cruisin at 70

Was towing the race trailer with my 2000 F150 but finally made the jump and got a '99 F250 PSD to drag the car to the tracks. Should be a bit easier and get better mileage!





and the race car

I pulled a 40' gooseneck Pace big foot trailer with two mustangs in it from Mississippi to Dallas and back. Truck was a 94 turbo non powerstroke. It did well. Tranny did a lot better than I thought it would.

How big is your trailer? I just inherited a truck identical to yours color and all but bone stock, looking into living quater trailers and didnt know how this truck would fair power wise.
