    pull my ski nautique 4k and jet ski 1300ish all the time with zero issues. Just recently towed my cousins trailer from Des Moines, IA to Manhattan, Kansas to move my older sister in school. That trailer loaded with furniture and such was about 4500. There were big storms that whole trip and high wind warnings which really put a hurt on performance. Truck averaged from 7.15 to 8.49 all day.

    I towed my 26' enclosed race trailer with car and "some" spares etc last weekend. Its an 07 TED Sport with 4 leafs, auto. I have a P3 controller and a weight distribution hitch.
    Trailer weight is unknown, car is about 2000lbs, had less than 1000 in other stuff in there, I really trimmed it out to tow with this truck.
    Only towed for 45min each way to the track, and it was completely fine.
    I got a few looks, but generally I didn't think it looked al that crazy, I have seen FAR worse looking truck trailer combos driving around.
