    Nice trailier man. I'm looking into getting one? What is the size of that, it's pretty long. Also, does the engine on the truck really rev out more with the big trailier, I'll be pulling mine with the same type of truck, F-150, so that's why I'm wondering.

    hey, im sure your f150 will pull it fine. i have a 16x7ft tandem axle with a wb and z and some other stuff on it, and i was pulling it with a 98 DAKOTA, and it was a v6! trust me, it pulled it, but not very well. now i have a 94 f150 and i cant even feel the trailer!

    thats a 6x12 and the f150 is a v6 standard and i dont even feel it. i feel the bumping but thats it, cant tell its back there. i even did a job where i cut down a 15ft water cactus ( which is heavy as hell ) another 20ft weed tree and hauled both away in the truck and trailer and it pulled that fine. its a strong truck. the true test will be the transmission over time!

    Nice. I'm happy to hear that it pulls it fine. Me and my family are going (probably driving) down to florida in the spring so that is why I was wondering how much a trailer would be down there, I hear they are alot cheaper. I don't know whether I should get one now up here or wait to go get one down there. But thanks for the help. And that is sweet that you can pull that 7X16 trailier with a dakota.

    But not necessarily safe, or smart.
