Towing ?

I am looking to buy a travel trailer but my owners manul reads 3500 lbs max. If I change my gears out and use trailer brakes will I be able to go to a bigger trailer or no? Thanks for the info.

The technical answer is "no". That being said, you could probably do it with little problem provided the frontal area is not too great.

I have a 18' that is under 3000 lbs dry. I have E brakes and a sway control Bar. I can do 65 MPH with OD off on the high way! On windy day it is like a brick towing a building! Plus with 35" tires I get about 7MPG and with the stock tires I get about 9-10 MPG..
