Dry weight is optimistic - and does not include batter or propane. Now add in your bedding, bath stuff, dishes, food, chairs, etc - 700lbs easy. So now you're at 2600 lbs if not more.
Now towing on a truck is figured with ONE 150lb driver and 1/2 tank of gas. Every pound you add to the truck (more fuel, passengers, firewood, bikes, cap on the truck, etc) reduces the towing amount pound for pound.
Next is GCWR - the total weight rolling down the road. Probably 7-8k pounds for the ranger, if that. (figure what, 4200lbs for truck, and 2300 towing and a few hundred for cargo in the truck, heck it may be even lower).
Payload...you, passengers, gas, hitch, toungue weight. Since F150s have only 1600-1700 lbs total payload the ranger is probably 1200-1300. You want 10-15% of the TT weight on the tounge, say 350lbs of a 2600lb trailer. That leaves you 900ish for you, gas, passenger, etc. (hitch can weight 50lbs).
Besides being unsafe with an overloaded truck, you'll wear it out FAST - axles, trans bearings, rear end gears, trans gears maybe, cooling for sure are not up to that workload.
