    you can tow skis with the bumper but the bumper might sit a little too high for the trailer.just size it up first. if it doesnt sit well go get the hitch and harness
    edit: 2 skis and trailer are nowhere near 3500 lbs

    You should be fine. If anything, worry about jack-knifing the trailer when backing. It could touch against the bumper. I have a Honda Aquatrax which is like 5-600 lbs on a single trailer. I don't even know its there. (I also have the Tow package) My point is, both skis combined and the trailer should only be about 1600 lbs max.
