Default Trailer Help!

Hey guys,

I wanted to get your help with this trailer I am about to bite the bullet on! I cannot wait. It is 3,003 pounds dry. The rest of the specs are in this link if you wouldn't mind checking it out. I have a longhorn ecodiesel that can pull 7,000 pounds. I don't think I'd have any issues pulling this thing with passengers and gear!

Have a great week,
Mo

I wouldn't see any issues with you pulling this. I would check what your tongue weight capacity is. I am sure yours is at or over 500 lbs capacity. The GVWR says TBA. I don't know why they haven't determined it yet unless the trailer is to new.
This trailer, I am sure, would exceed my GVWR when loaded since I have a 3.7l regular cab and restricted to 3800 GVWR.
I hope I helped you some in this matter. But IMO you look good to go. Lou.

You should have absolutely no problems, no worries there.
