2016 micro mini questions

We put a deposit down on a 2106fbs trailer and now I am in panic mode. We have a pretty steep driveway ( about a 13% slope) and I am worried that my 5 liter 2011 F150 will not be able to push it up the hill to park it on a level area at the top of the driveway.

Anyone know how steep you can take this trailer? Anyone have any experience with steep driveways?

I have a 18 foot boat on a trailer that is on a 22 foot trailer that I back up the driveway with no issue, but I am concerned with the TT.

A couple of pictures of the driveway.
Thanks as always.

I pull my 2108DS with a Chevy Tahoe, I have a steep driveway as well, I have no problem manuvering it around. If you have four wheel drive it might be a good idea to use it when you back up your driveway. I wouldn't really expect any problem.

Your truck's plenty powerful enough. I would be careful with clearance, especially with the sewer drain and proper chocking of the wheels.

Backing up steep driveway

I used to deal with about a 25 % grade and had to pull the trailer up to the top of the drive and lower it back down with a winch. In you case you may find that your main problem will be dealing with your equalizing hitch, it will try to keep the trailer and tow vehicle level as you transition from the street to your drive. That in turn will take too much weight off the drive wheels and you will loose traction.
