Naive girl here. I thought I wanted to buy a trailer for our "bus" (E350 12 pass. van) but I don't know its capability. OASIS did not give me a towing weight either. Sticker on tow bar (Class 5) is faded. Its a V8, 5.4L. Any ideas?

12 pass bus with 5.4 with trailer is going to be pretty underpowered. just a guess but 5000 max, and better to stay at 3 or less. is the "bus" oem or upfitter body. if upfitter they should be able to say what it can tow

debbi,
Need more information such as year model and axle ratio plus axle ratings on front and rear. On a 2003 model with 5.4 engine its between 6 and 7000 lbs tow capacity rating. But it will also depend on how heavy your van is loaded up so as to not exceed gcvw(gross combined vehicle weight) which is 12-13000 lbs max weight of tow vehicle and trailer.
