Recently, I purchased a 2010 Ford Ranger with a factory equipped towing package. Two days ago, I bought a 5' x 8' utility trailer to haul my lawn tractor and years of collected junk. It will also be used when I purchase building supplies. Over the years, I've owned two such trailers and two Recreational Vehicles (one was a 25' Travel Trailer). They are a good solution to many family and work related (e.g. a lawn service) needs at an affordable price.

Do you now, or have you ever towed a trailer?

Yes, had a 4X8 utility trailer, and been towing boats for over 25 years.
