What is the longest enclosed trailer I can pull with a 6.0 four window skoolie?

Also what is the gross weight of the trailer I can pull.

Googled it for you


looks about 4500 lbs and don't go longer than 50 feet on your trailer.

Whatever you decide, just don't buy that Ford 6.0L diesel. Bad mojo.

What do you want to tow...that is so long....with a short van?

Sorry. Not a Ford. I bought a GMC four window already completed skoolie. Just have brought it home. Need to buy a enclosed trailer in addition. Just didn't know the size I can buy.
Only diesel engine I'd buy is a Detroit,cummins or cat. And that would be for something much larger than this. But thank you so much for your help.

I am setting up a mobile dog grooming trailer with an area large enough after the utilities,the shop I can have a lounge with a big TV and some comfy seating while the clients wait for their dogs. Plus it's my personal den because my skoolie is not roomie enough for company. I am getting a vnose trailer with a ramp door at the back. The lounge will be open during the day so the clients can enjoy the view.

Exactly what I have in mind except my skoolie is 36 feet with a DT466. Thank you for sharing the picture.

Very clever. Maybe have a Manicurist to do pet owner's nails while they wait. Or a bar...

Will you be able to maneuver such a big rig at custy's house?
