We have a 1995 Chevy tahoe with a 7000 pound towing limit and a class 5 hitch. We are looking at the above trailer which has a 4200 dry weight. There will only be my wife and I camping. Is this a reasonable match for our towing vehicle? Most camping will be within a 200 mile range. Thanks for any help you can give us. Steve and D'Andrea.
We tow a Amerilte 25bh with a dry weight of 4200 lbs with our 07 Expedition that doesn't have a tow package and is limited to 7000 lbs. We always tow in the Rockies and so far have had no issues.

Shouldn't be a problem... I tow a Passport 235ML with my '03 Tahoe (5.3L 4x4) and it does just fine. My Passport has similar weight. Just make sure you install a transmission oil cooler if you don't already have one, the 4L60E transmission doesn't like to overheat.
