I wouldnt wait too long cause the more you wait the window of options probably closes - if that makes sense.

Welcome I hope it works out for you. One thing I had read about is the surface area of the trailer behind the tow vehicle and how it affects . If your vehicle is rated for it and your weight distribution hitch is setup correctly just take it easy and you should be ok. If its a power issue you could consider a different rear end.... Just a thought

Yes all the numbers make sense but it gets to close to the max towing capacity
That is my issue

LT rated tires will help the sway issues, as well. X2 on the rear gear change. I pull a 34 foot V lite with a shortbed Dodge Ram 1500 Quadcab Hemi 5.7, and it is sort of a struggle on that as well. Plenty of horses, not geared steep enough, beefed up the springs and put on LT tires- big improvement. Don't count on the friction brake style sway control, that uses the small ball mounts off to the side of the hitch; they are NOT enough to handle that trailer. Get a good quality dual bar style hitch and mount, such as Reese or Equal-i-zer, or even a Blue OX or a Hensley (pricey, but good). Good Luck, and if you set up the whole arrangement properly, you should get by with what you have, nearby home. No climbing Pike's peak or the Smokies, but flatland back roads. Randy
