Your 300 cube six will pull it right down the road, just don't expect to win any drag races with the guys running the newer trucks.

No problem! I pulled a 6 X 12 haulmark last season with a s-10 6 cylinder no problem.

Sure your truck will pull that trailer. Good luck with your purchase.

Them ford straight 6 300 cubic inch motors were made for towing. They have a lot of torque and a long lifespan! You should have no problem! I have an 88 f150 with a 5 speed and it pulls no problem! Good Luck

I have a 6x12 enclosed trailer and I have pulled it with a 1500 chevy 6 cyl before and it pulled it like nothing was back there with a toro 44" ztr with all hand tools

That 300 won't even break a sweat with that trailer. Go for the trailer.

I have a 6 cyl sport trac and I pull a haulmark 6x12 fine. Braking is tricky when wet though.
