Show us what your towing with your Raptor

Picture of what your towing with your raptor and how you like it. Also what year your truck is.

I will be getting a wrecked 2011-2012 Screw this fall. Plan is to tow my 20x7 6500lb race trailer with it to the track.

I've towed my 5500lb loaded snowmobile trailer with my 2011 supercrew with no problems. Next week, I'm towing my '56 down to the F 100 Supernationals in Tennesee then up to Maine. Should be around 2500 miles. I just installed a Timbren SES kit to help reduce the suspension sag. It only took 10 minutes to install them, so when I'm done towing for the week, I'll put the stock bumpstops back on. The car will be towed to a few shows this summer also.

Thats great you guys can afford to have a nice 250 as well. But that doesnt really help this thread.

Although there hasnt been much happening in it.

Id like to see the trailers that guys are towing with.

With a 6,000lb tow limit...not much, it could handle my old (now sold) 14' open car trailer with a small coupe on it but thats about it. One thing you have to keep in mind is that the suspension is vastly diffrent from a Raptor and a regular F150, regular F150s can tow about 9-12k (used it to tow my 24' enclosed for a seasson, now have an older 250) and raptors are limited to 6k and imho thats pushing it. I hate to say it but raptors are your play tow and maybe haul a snowmobile or atv (or 2 bikes) but for any real hauling get either a regular F150 or bigger.

-From someone that wants a raptor.

Last weekend towed my 30 foot camper with the Raptor.


Then a week before that had to drag the Excursion home on my car hauler.
