I see 4WD and 3.55 gears has a max tow of 7150. I would start thinking about a TT of about half of what the max tow # is. Knowing your realistic towing numbers can lead to some entertaining conversations when you start shopping.
"Durango? Man, that's the best! I'd suggest you take a look at the Road Dog Delux. It is only 10k# and your TV can pull that 'lil babe thru the Rockies without breaking a sweat."
A TT will have a sticker similar to the TV showing the "weight" of the trailer. That's EMPTY weight. The real weight will include your "stuff" which can be 200-800#. A smaller TT will have closer to the lower end of the "stuff". Don't forget that everything packed in the TV consumes some of the cargo allowance which reduces what remains for the TT tongue. Bicycles, pets, chairs, kids, adult bev's.....
We've owned 2 TT's (see my sig below) and love both.
Good luck and keep us updated! Keep asking questions, I lurked for a year before buying our first and can say (with confidence) you can't ask a bad or dumb question. I tried.
