2.5 ton trailer, thats 5000 lbs. Try it with a 9 to 10k TT and lets talk.


What up a rocky hill or in the sand. Up the rocky hill I wouldnt do but in soft sand like that not a big deal. Just air down and dont slow down

It's good to have a high-lift jack and some 1'x8' strips of old shag carpet with you too. A lot cheaper than that $300 tow fee.

If he stops he gets to get out the tow strap and ask his buddies for help.
Ask me how I know.
Baja California Mexico, March 1997.
Brand new Chevy 454 xtracab 4 wheel drive 265/75R16 Michelins, towing a 16 foot Nomad 1661 travel trailer on the beach.
I had my tow strap and a shovel and got to use them both.
My buddy also had a brand new 1997 Chevy and we got to test our 8 wheel drive abilities.
Great trip, though.
