As I posted previously, I think you can tow about 5,900lbs fully loaded.
If you want to stay under 5,900lbs, then I would look at trailers with a listed dry weight of 4,500lbs or less (that's an estimate). Here's why.
1) Ignore the dry weight listed on their website and brochure and instead look at the actual sticker for that trailer at your dealer - it should be in a cupboard. The trailer weight listed on that will probably be greater than 5,379 in my experience. It should state the real out-the-factory door weight and weight for full propane and water tanks. I think dealer add-ons would be extra.
2) Weigh the cargo you intend to camp with and add it to the weight on the sticker plus dealer add-ons. That's the weight of the camper you will be towing. This 26fkss will weigh well above 6,000lbs once you have everything on it and in it.
