I hate to "pile on," but I think you should take the advice of many previous posters and; 1. Upgrade your tow vehicle, or 2. Re-consider your purchase. I towed our (previous) 2306 with a Nissan Armada. It has a 6500lb tow capacity and is built on a truck frame. The tow experience was just ok, but I was consistently over the Armada's vehicle weight rating (not tow rating).
Whomever is telling you that "it will be fine" has no understanding of campers (or towing in general). After one season, I upgraded to a Tundra.
Before my 2306, I pulled a 3000lb camper with a Trailblazer (5200lb capacity). 😳 it wasn't pretty.
