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?

Good Morning,

I had a reminder this week of our RV travels with our children and towing. I met a young couple at the local truck stop who were on their second camping trip with their children. Yes, they had the new truck, two new Honda generators, a new sway bar and equalizer hitch and a 25' Jayco travel trailer. It sure brought back my days of RVing with the family and towing a trailer :-).

Ah, memories - MGY

Yes, I often tow one or two motorcycles on a small 4x8 trailer. Pulls easy, even with a little ford focus
