    How do you guys think a 96 f150, 5.0L 4x4 auto would do with this trailer behind it with one MAYBE two walkbehinds and gear on it.......only doing 6-8 lawns a week, everything, including the truck is part time...........will it struggle, or should i go for a 10'?

    It should do just fine. Your not towing a great deal of weight. The F150 should handle a trailer that size and a few walk behinds. good luck with it

    It should do fine, I pull the same kind of trl with a s-10 2wd for the last 8 years with a 2.8 v-6. I would go for the 12 ft trl for sure, 10 ft is gonna be very close on lenth if long enuff, but i can get my walk behinds on my trailer easy, end to end with out turning either one side ways

    Should be no problem. At one time i pulled a 12x6 with 3'solid metal walls with a Outfront and a WB ,trimmers etc. with a S10 5 speed 4 cylinder.Only problem was back end of truck was low when trailer was hooked up. No hills in my area.
