Default 1991 W150 towing capacity
So, other than my brakes suck which I will fix, and my truck is a stock 318 tbi 4 speed, what is the biggest trailer you have seen safely towed with one of these? I have a 16ft self contained travel trailer I have not tried to wo with it yet but did tow it with my old 1993 F150.

I towed a sedan on a car hauler. I don't know how long it was but estimated that it was in the neighborhood of 3500-4500 lbs. I also know that I put a 7000 lb. bumper and 6500 lb. ball on there prior to doing this. It was slow, but not ridiculous.

helped my buddy tow a 89 d150 to my place with a 91w250. i am guessing the whole trailer with truck probably weighed at least 4,000lbs and you couldn't even feel the trailer there at all. the truck pulled great the whole time doing 80mph
