I did a little math. 3.5 tons is 7000 lbs. 7000 divided by 20 trailers equals 350 lbs average weight of each trailer. :shifty:

A metric ton is 2204 lbs. Yeah, I know it only adds 35 lbs to each trailer...

Ford Ranger Demonstrates Towing Power By Pulling 20 Caravans

In its promotional campaign for the facelifted Euro-spec Ranger, Ford says the pickup can “tow whatever the hell you want.” And even if that means you want to pull 20 caravans, the Ranger will do the job without complaining. The short 1:15-minute video at the top of this page documents the moment when the vehicle towed a 20-tonne (44,092-pound), 100-meter (328-feet) convoy of caravans on a public road close to the Millbrook Proving Ground in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile,

Seen a Trailblazer tow a Semi on an icy/hard pack road in -7 (-27 with windchill) today, on a public (not closed) road.
