My old RV had been fenced in 6 years ago , and I sold it . I had to remove the empty lots fence and drag it backwards on a sled . ( never broke 1000 rpm's ) I long since sold my F250
so no real choice , but to use the Colorado to get it out/ up the road 5 miles to the buyer .

I was surprised how well it did with 6800 pounds behind it . I wouldn't recommend it , but in a pinch the little truck will get it done .

( mods helper spring out back , custom HD bumper )

Wow, Figured it was a 4x4.

Remarkable that the 2wd truck barely broke idle to pull the trailer out of a 6-year storage field. A 2wd truck usually doesn't have much traction for towing in grass. LOL

The G80 was doing it's job I'm sure. My open diff breaks traction like you can't believe!

A lot less drag but I would say it's equal if not more on weight, the trailer empty is 2,400, then tractor with front end loader and bush hog. It will hit OD on flat surface, only drag it about 10 miles one way but have done it several times. I would want something bigger if it was longer distance
