Sorry for not supplying all the needed info, I'm new at this
Trailer 1 is a Surveyor SV291 GVWR 7544.
Trailer 2 is a Flagstaff 27 RLSS GVWR 7474
I was just curious because one trailer's dry weight was more but had a lesser hitch weight. Didn't know if that mattered or not.

I even get 1.6 miles to the gallon better fuel mileage pulling mountains than I did with my Chevy on relatively flat ground. Keep it on flat ground and it will be okay. Hills will make it grunt and mountains will make it really strain. Good luck and happy camping with whatever you choose.
Thanks for the info. I figured the V-Lite was a little too heavy and yes I will be pulling it over the Continental Divide in the Rockies. Too much trailer for my truck. Again Thanks!
