This is what i estimate it to be when fully loaded:
2 x 40lb propane = 80lbs
30 gal of water = 250lbs
Suitcases/toiletries = 80lbs
Pots pans and other gear = 150lbs
Food, drinks and of course lots of beer = 150lbs
Storage box, spare, bike, and small tool box = 200lbs
Added weight 910lbs
+ dry weight of trailer 2800lbs
Comes in at
3710lbs. This should be an ok tow for the V6. Thats only 75% of the max towing capacity. Even still, i towed it when it was dry which is just over 50% of max.
Thats good to know about the brakes, i figured as such. I will be jacking it up tonight to check for wheel movement and play.
