A little help? I've glanced around but I'm having difficulty finding this information. A few websites showed the 2 and 4 horse aluminum open stocks as being around 3500lbs (for the big 3-4 horse open type trailer). However, I'm needing to know the weight of the big ol' steel open stocks (think older models used to haul cattle often).
I'm just being proactive as I'm purchasing a new truck, and I need some specs to decide if I'm alright with the 9300lb tow package or if I need to be looking at the max trailer tow package at 11300lbs. We own small horses, so fully loaded we'd be about 4,000lbs on horse weight alone. We prefer the older open stock style trailer (as do our horses) so I want to ensure the truck I have can pull it half decent.
The truck I'm looking at is a 2010 F-150 4x4 style, with a 5.4L V8 engine.
