2008 Trailblazer as Tow Vehicle
I am trying to determine if my TV, 2008 Chey Trailblazer will handle a trailer I am looking to buy. The TV is rated at 5400 lb towing capacity, 400 lb tongue weight (900 lb with WD hitch). The trailer specs:
Dry Hich Weight 490 lb.
Unloaded Vehicle Weight 3,139 lb.
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating 4,410 lb.
Cargo Carrying Capacity 1,233 lb.
We have an empty nest and plan to use this on weekends within a 100 mile radius of our home in south Louisiana. The only hills will be interstate over passes. I know that the correct WD hitch with Sway control in very important, but my questions is, am I asking too much from my TV for this trailer?
