I was taking my son camping for the cub scouts. I had volunteer to head up the setup and to run the camp for the weekend. This required me to hall a trailer, but I did not own a truck, so I borrowed my friends f150. This truck had 221,000 thousand miles on it and i pulled a 5,000 pound trailer with no problems. My dads truck is a chevy with less then a 100,000 miles on it and he is having a lot of problems with his truck. I have a hard time pulling an empty trailer with his chevy.
