Towing Information Needed

Hello forgive my writing in English, I am a resident of Quebec and I just submitted my registration on the forum Forest River. I have conflicting information and I wonder if you can give me the right information. I have a RAV4 with a V6 3.5 liter engine. that can tow 3,500 pounds. The payload are 825lbs, the curb weight is 3677 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating the (GVWR) is 4718 lbs. I want to buy a trailer whose data sheet is as follows:

Base unit dry weight: 2,972 lbs
base dry hitch weight: 415 lbs
base dry axle weight: 2557 lbs
Cargo capacity: 905 lbs

My question is if I can pull this trailer with my RAV4?

thank you

In my opinion no
If you add the trailer ccc to the 2972 dry weight Your at 3877# your all ready over.
Your hitch dry hitch weight is 415 add 100# after loading trailer plus a wdh 100# your at 615# on your vehicle plus one passenger and maybe gear and your at your max payload.

smaller trailer or bigger tv.

No. Typical loaded weight is 600-800 lbs over dry weight. That's 3600 lbs minimum.
No. Sorry.
