    hi
    I'm new to towing and need to now if I can tow my 21' kz sportsmen tt. The title says the trailer weight is 4000 pounds. I'm using a 2005 ford f150 5.4 litter with tow package,wight distribution system. We love to go to the white mountains and it has some steep hills. :approve:

    Hello and welcome.

    You will be able to tow that trailer with your truck just fine. I have towed much larger trailers with 5.4 equipped Expedition.

    To make sure, look in your owners manual and it will tell you tow ratings.

    Is that 4000 pounds 'empty' or 'loaded'?

    We have a 7200 lb Holiday Rambler and my 2005 5.4 w/3.73 gears pulls it nicely. We towed it to the Adirondacks last year and other than having to downshift a few times made out very well. Ford builds a very tough truck.

    I sat on the freeway for 2 hours while they removed the trailer laying across the road. Big trailer, small tow vehicle, and when they went to go down a hill, the trailer decided to go down first.

    Towing is one thing. Stopping is another. Exceeding any weight limit of your truck is a bad idea which may not cause you a problem, but on the other hand, may cause you lots of problems.

    John,
    The poster has not been here in a while, but he has a 1/2 ton Pick up and is towing a 21' trailer that probably weighs less than 4,000lb. He is using a weight distributing hitch. What else is needed? If he were towing a 30' trailer, it would be a completely different story. He is completely in the ratings of his 1/2 ton truck.
