towing with an expedition

We currently have a FR SUrveyor 29QBLE. Considering getting a 2012 expedition with the HD tow package. Would this be ok to pull out TT with. Our weight is 6003. I think we are fine there. It is the wheelbase is it too short?

First, what does the 6003 number represent?

Yellow factory sticker weight?
Bogus brochure/website "dry" weight?
GVWR?

And what is the payload capacity of the Expy and what's the trailer's hitch weight?(assume it will be the bogus brochure/website "dry" hitch weight)

6003 is our dry weight for the TT. THE Expedition says it can tow 9200 lbs. it has the heavy duty tow package. It says the GCWR is 15000.

I'll bet your over.. Those expeditions are heavy buggers. Once you add your stuff to the TT figure another 1000lbs on top of the dry weigh between food, water, propano, dishes clothes and so on..
