This tramper. 25ft Layton 1994ish. Maybe weighs about 4k? Not sure but I don't tow it far. Load dist hitch and anti sway bar make all the diff. Oh and air shocks.

You can get away with a lot of murder on flat(ish) land. In the hills/mountains, anything over 3500 with anything other than stock tires is, well, an adventure.

I towed my wife Camry on a uhaul trailer over a few hills to the shop. Wow...that was an adventure to say the least. A lot of 1st and second gear.
How many sensors, fuses or computers does a Bw4472 need? Zero.
