Try renting a trailer and tow it around.
Get a large U-haul and load it up.
Try to get around your toad weight and try it first.
Or try a friend or neighbors toad setup.
You may want to consider a smaller toad- maybe a Jeep Liberty.
I say - try it first before you spend a lot on the setup for the Commander.
The 6.0 and 6 spd trans is a great setup IMO- but it has it's limits.
I do not think I could tow comfortably without the new 6 spd tranny.
I got 10 mpg on my last trip.
Another reason I like the Chevy.
