I have searched and found a lot of good info, but I want some more specific advice. Should I tow this thing? My idea is to borrow my buddy's travel trailer and tow it across Michigan into Illinois this summer. He says that the trailer weighs 7000lbs, but I'm not sure he really knows. I surely have no idea how much trailers weigh. It is pretty long and dual axle. He tows it with a '93 1/2 ton 2WD sub, 350 engine, factory tow package and no modifications. Since I have about 5" in my suspension and 35's, my rig is about a foot higher than his. I have 350 crate engine, RV/towing rebuilt 700 with big 'ol cooler, 4.10 gears and rear 14B S/F. I have a hitch that seems to be custom. It is beefier than any of the receiver hitches I've seen for sale. The only problem is that it hangs down too low (and hence has been sitting in the garage), which may be an advantage here. I will install a trailer brake controller such as this: brake controller . I will tow in 3rd gear with the torque converter lock-up enabled and keep my speed down to 60mph or so. Are my plans bad? Any other advice?
