We have the sister trailer 23lb by flagstaff, and pulled it with an i6 gmc envoy with a 5000 tow capacity. It did good on flats but struggled on hills. I did add an aftermarket trans cooler.

I would like to have the option to do anything. We live in southern California near the beach so our quick trips will be flat. I am a mountain biker though and I'd like to get to places like Utah and Oregon which means several thousand feet of elevation climb over an entire trip from where I am. Plus I would like to take the trailer cross country at some point.
How did you feel your transmission cooler helped your towing? Did you do the work yourself or go to a specialty shop?
I can't believe how useful this forum has been. Funny thing, Originally I was going to buy a 2504s, thinking it was right at my tow capacity. Then as I did some research, I decided against it because everyone told me not to push to your max limit. Now I'm second guessing what I originally thought was insanely light!
