Thank you all for you thoughts and advice.

In the end, we did not do it...were not comfortable with it.

In turn we are looking at units 25' and below, and have found some with a slide for under 5000 lbs. So, we know they are out there and will take our time looking for the one that will not only suit us, but our tow vehicle!

Very smart of you. We have a 34' TT and we have to be very careful on asking when we book sites to make sure they can handle a trailer like that. At one provincial park we booked they had to change our site as they didn't write down the trailer size and when we got the the lady looked out and said No way are you getting that in the site we booked for you and gave us another and we were very fortunate to have got another site as it was a long weekend and we had just drove several hours through a major storm to get there. (I would not have been very happy had they not been able to give us another site)

as someone who owns the same vehicle, i think you're making the right decision.
i tow a 23' HTT with a super slide. it weighs a little over 5k, loaded for camping, and i wouldn't want to tow anything longer or heavier.
the main reason is that i have a number of mountain ranges to get over quite often and anything heavier would really strain my Avy.
the second is we prefer state campgrounds which have smaller sites.

if you lived in flat land and preferred RV parks, then you could go with a heavier, longer rig.
