Me and my wife are looking into possibly getting a travel trailer so that we can enjoy the camping season a bit more, and we are soon thinking about starting a family.
We went to a few dealerships today to do some looking and found one that we really like, of course the dealer said that my set-up would work fine, however I have my doubts.
I have a 2011 DC LB 4X4 automatic TRD Sport Package.
I know the towing capacity is 6500lbs, but I am looking for a "safe" tow.
The two trailers we picked out that we liked are as follows
1. Surveyor SV-235, with a Dry Weight of 4201lbs, and a hitch weight of 481lbs. The trailer is also 25' long.
2. Surveyor SP-230, with a Dry Weight of 3555 lbs, and a hitch weight of 398lbs. This trailer is also 25' long.
I am aware of the needed brake controller, and the WD hitch, amongst other things.
Most of the towing, if not all will be down the highways and then gravel roads to local lakes.
I REALLY like option #1 as it has more interior room due to the pop-out, but it also weighs in at 700 pounds more due to that pop-out.
Option 2 is kind of a fallback if option 1 would not work.
Also the trailers are duel axel trailers to help with weight distribution, not sure if this means anything.
Thanks in advance guys.
