Info for weight on 2009 Surveyor 235

Hi
Looking at a 2009 Surveyor 235.

I have a Hummer H3 5 litre and I am concerned about the towing of this trailer. Also are there some hitches that would be better then others?

Is this a good, reliant trailer?

Thanking you in advance for any advice!

are you talking about the 5.3 v-8 or the 5 cylinder engine?
don't know of a 5.0L GM engine.

that's what i thought, have a friend with the same Hummer.

TOO MUCH trailer for your Hummer. if you had the 5.3 v-8, might be possible.
just Google "2009 Surveyor brochure" and you'll get one.

its actual weight just sitting on the lot will be over your tow capacity.

5.3 tows it like a dream. Good engine. GM used to make a 5.0 back in the day. It was a 305.
