Hoping to tow!

We bought our Wildwood 26FLS and taking it to be weighed this week--Forest River says it weighs 5700 lbs. but I want to be sure as we tow with a '99 Chevy Express conversion van with a 5.7 L. engine and heavy duty tow package with 3:73 rear--rated to tow 6500 lbs. I know we will be close but hope to tow it to Florida and leave it there for our Winter stays. We will pack it as light as possible. We towed it home from the sale 102 miles through lots of mountains and it was just fine--but empty! Feel free to eeither scare me or encourage me with your comments, please! Jan (P.S. We HAVE to have a van type vehicle.)

Just watch your speed ... You will probably do better that a truck because of the wind deflection off the trailer. As you can see in my sig, I pull a pretty heavy trailer. Last summer I pulled West from Memphis without major problems.

My brother-in-law did tell he thought he was going to have to push me up the hills. ( He has a 08 Chevy 2500 Dura pulling a Cardinal 5fer). I was doing 20 in second with 87 % throttle. What more did he want? .... LOL
