I found a 2000 f250 7.3 extcab sb 4x4 for a reasonable price. The wheelbase on this truck is 142". I know the braking and power won't be a problem. But will the heavier truck and heavy duty suspension be enough to increase the stability? Your input is greatly appreciated...
Alot too depends on how the trailer is loaded, if the toy hauler has alot of weight behind the axles, it's gonna handle poorly no matter what you pull it with.
A longer wheelbade will help. Make sure you have a good brake controller and the trailer brakes are properly adjusted.
