Any thoughts would be appreciated
i suggest you do more reasearch about towing trailers and weights, before you buy one.
you're looking at a 28' TT with a GVWR of nearly 7500lbs. to tow with a Traverse.
that's a trailer that even a 1/2 ton truck would be near its limits towing.
it sounds like you've have their UVW yellow sticker weights, which is good. but loaded for camping, they'll both exceed the Traverse's max.
although the 260 has a huge CCC that most owners would never use, the 260 would easily weigh 5500lbs.
the biggest issue will be the length and the actual tongue weight will exceed the max of the Traverse.
plus, if you don't know, the 5200lbs. tow capacity of the Traverse(i think) is with only a 150lb. driver.
so the weights of anyone or anything else in the Traverse, will decrease that 5200 number, including the weight of the WDH.
bottom line, TOO MUCH trailer.
