    I know it's a large pop up, but I'm hoping to be able to haul it with my Taco. It weighs in at 4000 lbs dry, double axle, and has a two place 4wheeler deck. I don't own a 4 wheeler and about the only thing I'd haul on the deck would be a cooler and some foldup chairs. I know I'll need a brake energizer. Any advice?

    Why such a big trailer if you aren't going to haul any "toys?"

    I used to tow a 2004 Fleetwood Redwood Highwall tent trailer weighing 3700lbs. Loaded with all our gear, we must have been way past 5000lbs trailer and bed contents.
    My best advice is the weight distribution hitch. Cruising down the highway, I forgot my trailer was back there.
    Also a break controller is a must.
