I would think that the reason the trailer is a 5th wheel setup would make it mostly impractical with a ranger. Weight and such. I'm sure it can be done, but what could you possibly haul with it. The trailer would weigh more than the truck.

Perhaps some time I'll tell you about a story concerning my dad in an over loaded truck on a long steep hill and over heated brakes. The short version is that he ended up in the hospital in the ICU.
