4 Down TOAD

I am trying to settle on a 4 down tow vehicle, but I have a question. I own a 2013 Forest River Lexington GTS 265 and a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer which is 4 wheel towable? Is the TrailBlazer too heavy (4300 lbs) to be towed by my Lex? The Lex GVWR IS 14600 and the GCVR of 22000.
Is there an accurate site that lists the 4 wheels down towable vehicles?

I didn't research it, but usually gas-powered MHs are limited to 5000# towing with 500# hitch weight, so you should be okay towing your trailblazer 4-down. Of course, that's provided it can be towed with 4-down. You didn't mention the year of your trailblazer, but here's some 4-down towing guides.

I looked up your MH online and it showed a GCVR of 20,000 not 22,000. Either way if your MH is within its weight rating of 14,600 you can tow your trailblazer if it is able to be towed 4 down. It appeared from what I saw that you do have a 5,000 weight limit for your hitch.

In regards to a dinghy towing guide, MotorHome magazine publishes one every year. Do a web search for motorhome dinghy towing guide and you should find all you need to know. Hope this helps.
