Default Can I tow a packed Cargo Trailer?

I have a 2009 Ford Ranger 4x4 Supercab. I was wondering if I would be able to pull a cargo trailer with my bed and all my personal belongings inside of it. What is the weight capacity?

do you have your owner's manual? if not look online for a PDF. we know nothing about your truck,your suspension, transmission or gear ratio. Do you have a hitch?

I do know that manuals aren't even rated for 3k and i think autos are 5k. How heavy is the trailer? Length of trailer?

If the only personal belongings you own are a pillow and a pair of socks... Maybe.

If they are wool socks or a memory foam pillow forget it.

Welcome to FRF. This past summer I towed a U-Haul motorcycle trailer w/ motorcycle from southern NJ to south eastern Maine with no problem.
