My gross vehicle weight is 6600 and I am at 5800 with a full tank, me and my wife, hitch and tools. So with a tongue weight of 800 I am at exactly 6600 with no margin for passengers.

Our trailer is at 7300 with cargo but we haul dry. We have plenty of margin on the hitch but our transmissions is only good to 7300 because we have 3.53 to 1 gear ratio.

I tow a 28 ft Rockwood TT that weighs 6700 # loaded with a 750 tongue weight with 2014 Durango. I am close to weight limits and I do not have problems. I use a Blue Ox WDH and keep speeds under 65 MPH. No problems in 7000 miles of towing. I did change the Durango tires for higher speed and load limits which gave me stiffer sidewalls and less TV movement.

I picked up my new 233S yesterday and towed it with 2013 Ford Explorer XLT V6. It felt it but pulled it down the highway fairly well.

I have a 233s and pull it with a 2012 Durango Citadel V-8 with tow package. I have no problem at all with this setup. The hemi has a ton of power.

I pull a wildwood 27rkss. 33 ft long. TV is a grand Cherokee with Hemi. Loaded to go it's roughly 6800 lbs. max tow weight for the jeep is 7400. I'm right at limits for total cargo, tongue weight on jeep but so far absolutely no issues. Trailer sits level if not an inch high at hitch. I use a blue Ox WDH.

Thank you all for your replies. I thought I might get a lot of negative replies making my choice of the 19 easier. No I have to consider the 233s some more.

Does anyone have personally experience? Not Buying A Truck
I have a 1999 Dodge Durango V8 Magnum with towing package that has been towing the 2013 233s Roo for a couple years now and a 3500 lb rockwood HW 276 since 2007. It will do fine despite the age of mine now is having problems getting up hills . Guess they can't last forever.
