loaded for camping, it will be way over your Envoy's capability.

Please tell me the dealer told you that the Envoy could tow it.
They told me it should work.

My Jeep Wrangler unlimited has a tow capacity of 3500lbs. My Wolf Pup "yellow sticker" weight is 3060. I kept all the stuff going in to a minimum. I'm close but not exceeding my capacity. I have a Haul Master Equalizer and Trailer Sway Control Kit. It has no problem pulling or stopping it. I have been on pretty flat terrain, though.

thanks for pointing out changinggears website. Looks like good info!

Not any! Need to know size engine, gearing, payload. Does it have a tow package etc.

Also how much weight are you adding? Dry wt. of TT does not include tanks bat all your stuff.
Being knew to this or not I would advise you do your own research and please don't base decision on what others are trying to sell you!

Lots of help here...just ask!


Good Luck and Happy Traveling

I have 2 months before the trailer will be ready to pick up, so I have plenty of time to find a truck. I just wish I wouldn't have to upgrade before I even pick up the TT.
