    I have a 28ft enclosed car trailer and I am looking for a truck that can tow the trailer + a 3000lb car. There is a guy a couple blocks from my house selling a k5 for a pretty good price, would you suggest me getting this as a tow rig or should i stay away from k5 as far as towing.

    K5's don't make the best tow rigs, wheelbase is too short.

    You should fill in your profile so we can see where you are from and such, gives people a better idea if to respond or not, for instance if they have or know of something for sale in your area.
