Absolutely. Like I said, I wouldn't even attempt more than 21 - 23' overall with it.

I personally think you'll be fine as long as you take it easy.

If you do get it make sure you have the WD/Anti Sway hitch set up correctly. Just take your time getting it set up and you'll be fine.

If you are must tow this weekend, I would try to travel when it is cooler outside, avoid hills, stop and go and go slow. I know that is asking a lot especially this weekend. Also try to limit your maneuvering when getting into your spot as that puts a huge strain on the trans. Do not assume that because it did not bow up that everything is OK. Usually trans damage due to overheating is a cumulative effect. I would not waste my money on trans flush. It will accomplish very little.

I had a 2003 TB LTZ I6 4x4, we had received a popup and was not bad towing just noisy. following yr got a P3 brake controller along with a Roo 21, actually 17.5 plus the tongue. Used a harbor freight/curt WDH with add on sway to bring it home about 40 miles. No real problems with that setup, but upgraded to a Blue Ox. Drove 300 miles and had no problems. On the way home went over a 1.37 mile 2 lane bridge with no shoulders that goes to 140' high. It wasn't as bad on the bridge as I thought it would be.

Although I would still have the TB I got tired of putting in parts and got a Expy, will have to see how that works together.

PLEASE research before you purchase the trailer.
TBS are notorious for being squirrely, due to their short wheelbase.
That's TOO much trailer for a Trailblazer.

Please post year/make/model of trailer so we can help you not to make a big mistake.
X2!
A Trail Blazer is rated at 5K? give or take?
Get REAL Truck and you'll be fine.

If your hitch is properly set up and brake controller installed I'd go for it. I'd probably take a 30 minute break at the 1/2 way point and would try to stay on mostly level roads. Forget the flush it may cause problems instead of helping. Go slow andhave fun.
