towing 24' cargo trailer
Hello all. New to the forum.
I have been towing this trailer with a 2005 F250 6.0 diesel with no problem at all. There are some upcoming issues with the truck so I got rid of it and picked up a near new 2009 f150 XLT 4X4 supercrew with 5.5' box and 3.55 gears. 5.4 with six sp. auto. It has the tow package (not max) with the factory ford brake controller. Factory tow hitch with 7 and 4 prong wiring harness. My problem is I am Dyslexis with numbers.(numbers come out backwards to me) Had it all my life. The truck is 7200 GVWR with 3750 GAWR front and 4000 GAWR rear according to door sticker. The trailer has a UVW of 4064 lbs., cargo weight not to exceed 2936 and a GVWR of 7000 lbs. The trailer is loaded with equistrian supplies that I haul to horse shows. It's like a mobile store. Bridles, 3 light saddles, horse care products, clothing, boots etc. No live weight, feed or water or propane tanks. There should not be more than 1000 lbs. (l500 max to be on safe side. The truck would have me at 150 lbs and full tank of gas. Longest trip would be 30 miles flat 3 times a summer and rest less. There should be no problem with this truck should there and should I use an equilizer hitch. Sorry for being long winded but all the weight numbers confuse me.
