88 5speed f150 towing 2 trucks?

Hello,

I drive an 1988 f-150 5speed and I'm planning a trip from Georgia to New Orleans to pick up 2 1992 Dodge Dakotas and I was wondering if this tired old f150 would be able to handle the job? I've never towed anything before so I really have no idea of the capabilities of the truck... Should I just rent a truck or something? thanks!

a 1990 F150 has a max towing capacity of 7500lbs acording to edmunds.com so i wouldnt tow much more than 7000 on that truck.
