Sorry to the OP we kinda went off the rails a little bit on your thread but it's still has to do with towing so maybe it will help

atleast we throw in some pics too. These trucks haul great. My work 04 2500 hauls smoother then our 08 F350 4x4 with a load for sure. With the size of the trailer and the weight of it you got back there, you will have no problem towing it. Might also be a good idea to make sure all tires of truck and trailer are torqued correctly. You never know with Uhaul sometimes .
Having the tires on truck and trailer at proper pressure, will help with the milage a lot. Low tire pressure will cause resistance and pull. I always keep a tire pressure gauge on me. When you stop for gas or washroom break, just give a quick double check.
Maybe grab a little portable plug in air compressor from Walmart or where ever to keep in the truck for if there is a problem. Will also be handy in the future too.

enjoy you're trip. I have a 2010 crew cab 4x4 with hemi. I pull a 7x14 enclosed trailer that weighs about 5000lbs with my load but it does have brakes on both axles which is a bonus. pulling isn't a problem at all. the wall being pulled behind my truck(enclosed trailer) is tough on miles per gallon though...

I tow a 26' boat on a dual axle trailer. Make sure you have a spare tire for the trailer, check the tires for proper air pressure and that there are no cracks in the sidewalls. Don't just rely on seeing that there is tread as trailer tires wear our long before the tread wears out. I change my tires every 5 years on the trailer, check the tire manufacture date on the sidewall to see when the tire was manufactured. I have seen lots of Uhauls on the side of the road with issues related to tires or for other reasons.

Tire failure occurs often when you go too fast, tires are usually rated for 65 mph and below, speed will kill a tire real fast.







On this trip I was pushing the limit on age, I had one tire blow about 30 minutes into our trip and 2 others have radial separation failure.
