I don't have one...

I don't have one yet. Trying to find out how much I can tow. I have a 2008 Ford F150 long bed Triton XLT 4.6 liters. I was looking at a 1999 Damon 32 foot fifth wheel. I don't know if I can tow it or not. I just have the single cab.

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

Good. It only has 80,000 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing, my nephew is a mechanic. Just trying to figure out how the heck much it will tow.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's it

ok

I am showing for your year and engine you can tow 6400 lbs. I am not sure of the weight of the 5th wheel you would need to know what the total gross weight of that is, you will need a brake control system set up for that as well. Hopefully that gives you a number you can work with.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
