. I am hoping to prove him wrong???!!!!
first, the 233S will quite a bit over 4000lbs. its fictional "dry" weight, for a stripped-down version, is 4365lbs.
figure its yellow sticker weight(what it weighed when it left the factory)will be around 4750lbs.
add 30lbs. for a battery and 40lbs. for propane and it'll weigh around 4820lbs., and that's before adding water and cargo weight.
without knowing more about your Burb, can't say for sure, especially without knowing how much your passengers and cargo in the Burb will weigh.
does it have the factory tow package? what rear end ratio does it have?
and gas mileage will be the same as nearly all gassers towing a travel trailer,
average will be between 8-10mpg, depending on where you're driving. if it's all mountains, then it'll be lower. you should definitely do better than 5mpg, unless you are driving in a strong headwind.
bottom line, if your Burb has a factory tow package and you don't overload the Burb, you should be fine towing the 233S.
