Tow Capacity

Does anyone know the tow capacity of my bus?
International RE DT530

I was thinking about bringing a couple of sons down south to help cleanup from Irma. Saddly my oldest that can drive has flown the coup so I would want to haul my truck down on a flatbed trailer. I'd be bringing an F250 weighing 6500 empty plus the trailer.

84 -150lb passengers weigh 12600lbs. Pulling 7500 should be no sweat.

I used to pull a 10,000 lbs generator with my 9.0L International.
No problem, but I had a good welder fabricate the HD hitch system.

The weight wont be a problem. Just make sure the hitch setup you run is up to the task.
