That's fine, I personally do not like anything underpowered and if you travel where there are hills or mountains, having something that will make it up there without busting a gut is better. I would rather have over what I need than under what I need to have. Besides, a lot of people buy the vehicle then the trailer and find out they want a bigger trailer later. If you plan correctly you can have the truck that will do everything you want without spending for both truck and trailer again.
But that's why we have choices. Whatever floats your boat is good for you. I'm old enough and lived long enough to have made all the mistakes.
