let me guess, the dealer said you'd have no problems towing it!!!
it won't be long before you find out that it can't handle it.
the actual factory weight will be around 4300lbs.(seeing that the fantasy "dry" weight is 3836lbs.) that's without water, cargo, propane and battery.
your Outlook has a 4500lbs. tow capacity, IF it has the factory tow package and only a 150lb. driver in it.
so, before you add anything to the trailer or anything/anyone to the Outlook, you have only about 200lbs. between the two.
so if you have one 200lbs. passenger, you now can't take any cargo, water, propane nor battery.
your 234T is about the same length and weight of my 23SS. it had a similar "dry" weight and it weighed 4471lbs. from the factory with the normal "options". i tow with a v-8 truck and i would never tow it with a v-6 smaller SUV!!!
i hate to rain on your parade but you've got wayyy too much trailer for that vehicle.
