I recently picked up a used travel trailer - 16ft with a rated dry weight of about 2,700 lb. The previous owner added an A/C and a mod to the rear bumper for carrying bikes/wood, so dry weight is probably closer to 3,000 if I'm conservative.
I live up a fairy steep road, I'm guessing around a 30 degree slope or so. The steepest section is short, maybe 30-40 yards and I'm wondering if I should drop the truck into low gear "L", or just leave it in drive (OD off of course) to negotiate this hill.
My rig: '99 Xtra Cab 4x4 3.4L V6. I've already added a tranny cooler and brake controller and upgraded the entire suspension last year, but am fairly new to towing.
Should I have any concerns pulling this trailer up a short steep slope?
