towing 2006 F150 4x4

I am going to buy a 1994 to 1999 class c 26-30 ft with a ford 460 or v10 motor. I also have need of a pickup. I have found a 2006 f150 short bed, 4x4 with a manual transfer case in the floor. This truck weights in at 4640 lbs. dry weight. Would I be ok in towing this pickup with this type of class c motorhome ? enough power in the motorhome? thanks
Tom

The Class C may not be rated to tow that much weight - some are 3500 or 4000 lbs. Check before you buy, both the hitch rating and the tow capacity or GCWR of the RV. Even a 5000 lb tow rating is not much for that size toad - it will likely have gear loaded into it and be right at - or above - 5000 lbs.

If you want to tow a pick-up, a Ranger of Colorada would be a better choice for that size RV.
