tractor + trailer 1500 ??? I would of figured the tractor was at least 1800. but then it might not be as big as it looks. I wish I had one to play with :razz:I have a U-Haul Class II hitch, with 2" ball. I installed the hitch myself http://www.elementownersclub.com/forums/showpost.php?p=487651&postcount=92
The tractor plus trailer weighs about 1500 lb. That's as much as I would want to tow without surge brakes on the trailer. The E has plenty of torque for that, and handles it very well. My estimate of tongue weight is 250 lb.
I have towed up to 3,000 lbs, but with a good tandem-axle trailer and surge brakes. Power is a bit weak for that, but manageable.
I have MT, so I can mange the power delivery carefully without AT overheating problems.
