Towing With A Shorty
I have searched and searched about towing with a shorty and see most people say they can't tow much. I don't understand why. Will someone please tell me if I am missing something???
2004 E350 17 passenger 6.0
Rear GAWR 7800
Front GAWR 4050
We would remove a couple of the seats and have 5 people(600lbs), and about 300 lbs in stuff.
Travel trailer is 35' with tounge and 7900 lbs fully loaded.
Hitch weight 810lbs.
On Ford 2004 towing guidelines it says for a E350 cutaway chassis for a 6.0 the GCWR is 20,000 lbs and up to 10,000 lbs max trailer weight.
So if we were at the bus limit( which we will be lower if I figure about 2200 lbs for people and removing some of the seats) and the trailer we would be at GCWR of 19,400 and under the max trailer weight.
Any thoughts or advice on wether or not this could work and what mods we would have to do?
