can an f-150 pull a loaded 16' trailer?
wow, what a question...what engine does the truck have? whats going to be on the trailer? weight? if its a V8 then it will pull it, but you also gotta be worried about stopping it. Give a lot more details..
I use a 2004 f150 5.4l to pull a 16 ft tandem axle trailer loaded with a ztr, walkbehind, etc.
He actually expects an answer to such a vague question? No engine mentioned, auto or manual tranny, enclosed or open trailer, no idea what is even being hauled on the trailer? WOW!!
I pulled a 18 foot trailer loaded with equipment for years with a V6 powered F150 with a manual tranny. Did a great job and was good on gas.
ok.ok.ok. geez sorry
it is a v6 4.2 open trailer
push mower 21", couple of wb's
From my personal experience you will be fine. You wont win any records for speed, but will do good on gas.
i use my 98 Frod Ranger 4X4 with a 4.OL V6 to pull my 17.5 Foot boat on a 20 Foot trailer. The trailer has brakes that really help but getting going and driving are no problem and stopping is not an issue with the brakes. with this being said i think you will be fine with your F150 and 16 Footer
ok, thanks guys for all the advice
I didnt mean to sound like an a**hole or anything, just couldnt really give advice without knowing a few details.
