ok, i know it is not a diesel, but it is an f150 stock, 2010, bumper pull, tongue weight of 300lbs, trailer weight of about 4-5k lbs, and any tips about corners or curves, i am going up to the mountains and was wondering about some of the tight corners? i have towed before, just not with this long of a trailer, thanks

What kind of trailer?

We have a 25ft enclosed car trailer, on ours it is hard to get out of the driveway because the rear end of the trailer is so far from the rear axle that is tends to scrape on stuff when going downhill to flat, or from flat to uphill. The first 25ft trailer we had with custom everything my grandpa decided to take into downtown seattle, and it has a giant gash on the side form hitting a telephone pole.

Here you can see the problem with the rear end.

it is a car hauler, but the deck is about equal with the top of the tires, there is probably 5 or 6 feet that hangs over the rear, i dont think that there will be a problem with hitting the rear, but i have seen others do that and it does not end pretty, it is also an open trailer. sorry about your trailer, the black one looks great!
thanks
