I know I am gonna get blasted for this but let me explain. We have had our Jayco 27 BH trailer parked at a permanent site for a couple of years now and it will be there for a few more years. The old truck we had to jockey it around had some engine problems and we are not going to fix it anymore. Now to the 2008 Ford Ranger, it has a 4.0L engine and a Type 3 hitch rated for 6000 pds and 600 pd tongue weight. The Ranger is rated to pull 5500 pounds and I would like to use this truck to pull the trailer off the lot so we can cut the grass under it on occasion and pull across the campground to winter storage spot. Would this be problem for the Ranger. We are at most moving it about 500 meters, and on private land not on the highway. I was hoping i would not have go and buy a big truck again for a trailer that won't move for at least the next 5 years.

Should not be a problem. I use to tow my 5500lb boat/trailer around with a little Jeep Cherokee that had the 115hp Chevy 2.8ltr V-6 in it. Of course had to use 4Lo to get it back up the ramp. Little Jeep lasted me 16 years and 200,000 miles. Your Ranger is a great little truck, wish I had one.
