Dont know what the tow rating is for that diesel pusher, but its probably towing less weight than it seems.
Most likely....
-trailer is less than 3,000 lb
-explorer is less than 5,000 lb
-boat & trailer is less than 2,000 lb
- bicycle is less than 50 lb
Grand total is probably less that 10k lb.
If most gasser class A's can tow around 5k lb, i dont see that this would be out of the realm of within specs for a diesel.
.....but we dont know the class a's specs

I'd like to see how the boat comes off.

X2!

I see a winch on the back support with the cable running up to the tongue of the boat trailer. So my guess is that he has a set of ramps to go from the deck up to the boat platform then lowers the tongue with the winch and hooks up to the Ford and drives off....

If so I really want to see him back it up that ramp!

Thats what im thinking too.
My buddy had a boat like that and it was really light. I bet its not to difficult to push it up the ramp, or it has a winch behind the boat trailer to pull it up.

Good point about winching it up! That is a pretty light boat!

It looks like a Tracker 170. Depending on the outboard he has on it with the trailer, I would bet it's at least 2000 lbs. It has a full deck. When I had one I sure would not have wanted to try and get it up such a ramp lol. It's a nice setup he has.
