I towed an 18 ft travel trailer daily for 6 months straight with my 1994 Dakota 4x4 v6 5 speed. No problems at all. Maybe a little slow going up hills but otherwise just fine.

Yeah, I figure it will tow up to 4K as long as I have trailer brakes. If I can keep the weight close to the recommended capacity I should be good, my main concern is the clutch ;-( I won't be trying to keep up with several friends that have serious tow-rigs and drive 80. I don't care what your towing with, high speed with a trailer is not a real good idea.

Very smart.....I think anything with a trailer should NEVER exceed 65mph.
