When we started out, we rented and liked it and it was towable with our Honda pilot. Decided to buy our high wall 277 and on paper- the pilot could tow it. So 3800 trailer against a 4500 lb tow capacity- I was like "I'll be fine". The deciding factor after a couple of trips was we were camping at 9000 ft and if I stopped for whatever reason it would be a struggle to get back moving again. Some times we would take two cars cause I felt safer that way.
So someone traded their tundra at the dealership I work at and we bought it the next day and no more overload. But now we traded our pop up for a 31 ft trailer and pulling 8k now. But it's all still fun!
