Have you weighed it loaded? Truck with all people &gear, full of gas. Trailer with (?)) and all fluids. It's a combined weight. But it's futile to ask for advice when your going to do it regardless.
I'm not perfect I have towed over loaded. But it wasn't the plan. I now have a 1/2 ton, at the time I thought it was more than I'd ever need again. But once again I was wrong. I made my decision based on faulty future sight[emoji851]
