Default newbie with towing ?

have a 09 trx4 4wd crew cab truck with the tow package going to get a travel trailer, the bumper reads I have a class 3 hitch but it looks like it could be a generic bumper cover, the hitch looks like it could be a class 4 but being ignorant in the ways of science I'm not sure heard it was upgraded to class 4 with the tow package and getting a lot of different info on towing capacity thanks

You're towing from a hitch and not the bumper right? How big is the trailer?
