    its not the pulling part its the stoping, make sure any trailer you get has brakes, and a good trailer brake controller helps

    I pulled a 8x 28ft Hobbi toy hauler with my V6 Dodge regular cab (wouldn't go over 55 except going down hills though.....lol no brakes either...thats always fun) Had to get a V8, cause it felt like I was tearing up the V6 with my 18ft trailers with 2 zts on them!
