Ok, I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota quad cab, 4.8l V-8, 131" wheel base. It has a trans. cooler on it and I think has a tow package(wired under dash for brake, and receiver hitch). On the door it list 6010lbs.
So if I use an 80% rule. . . . 6010 lbs. x 80% = 4808lbs.
We are looking at a V-Lite 26WRB Which list dry weight of 4766. After I add extras and our supplies, I think it is going to weight out at 5200lbs. That makes it around 88% of my towing capacity.
I know I don't want to tow 6000lbs.,(had a salesman tell me I could). Any suggestions from other V-Lite owners or Dodge Dakota owners?
Also, they are adding a WD hitch to the trailer.
Any particular brand I should stay away from?
Or better brands to opt for?
Any suggestions please,
