    i already read the manual and it didnt answer my question

    I have a 1986 chevy C-10 V6, 131,000 on it. Can i safley pull a enclosed 6-10 or 6-12 enclosed with it, or better off with going with a open trailer. The only benefit to the enclosed is that i could store a toolbox and other things in there and not have to unload everything every night.

    if it is a C-10 half ton truck yes, you can pull a 6 x 10 trailer no problem, if it is an S-10 compact truck I wouldn't do it.

    We had one back in the summer, we just used it for picking up parts and d*cking around. I wouldn't be afraid to pull a 6X12 with it, you just need some electric braks as those trucks had nothing for brakes. You'll be fine especially if your area doesn't have alot of hills.
