Hey All

Looking for advice on a trailer; would like to get a 6x14 single axle enclosed. Question is can I pull this loaded with my 04 Dakota with a V8? No options on a bigger truck, this is the family truck also.

Not to be a smarty pants here, with a v-8 engine I would think you would be able to tow with no problems. Most people always ask can I pull this with my truck when they should be worried about stopping it. You may want to consider adding brakes to the trailer if it doesnt come equipped with them.

Yeah, we use a dakota V-8 to pull 3 Standers on a 16' open trailer and it does fine. I wouldn't think it would be a problem. There is also a local LCO that uses a dakota V-8 to pull his trailer with a Gravely 260Z and 52" Sentar.
