We were using a Honda Ridgeline when we first got our trailer. It worked but it was definitely at the upper end of its capability. About two weeks ago we bought a Ford F-150 with a 5.4 liter. Now I have to hook the brake controller up again. I cut the wires and took the one out of the Ridgeline. It looks like this truck is prewired for it unlike the Ridgeline. That'll be a big time saver.
I pull with a VW Touraeg TDI and it can pull 7,700 lbs. and my Jayco EXP21M loaded comes in at 5,600 lbs. I don't even know it's behind me and I get 23 mpg running on I-5 and in the mountains I get 19 mpg. With out the trailer on I-5 from Bellingham to Portland I get 34 mpg all day long. Love this car!
A visit to the CAT Scale will tell you what your weights are and will cost around $14 (3 passes). IMHO you will reach the Rear GAWR before you reach the max tow weight.
Unless you have changed to LT tires you should limit your speed to 65mph or less since trailer tires are rated for 65.
