Hitch weight for trailer is 550 pounds.
GCWR and GVWR look ok (22K and 14.5K), and hitch is rated at 7500 towing, 750 tongue weight.
Would use a WDH and anti-sway hitch on trailer, fyi.
And, there's the theoretical versus the actual, so looking for someone who can share "been there done that" :-)
I haven't done it, but I've threatened my kids many times that I'll buy a old beat up trailer to pull behind the RV for them to stay in and I can stay in the RV. Unfortunately, they think that would be 'cool' so I can't use that anymore.
I suppose if the numbers add up, you don't drive like a retard, it should work. Although if it was me, I'd keep it a bit shorter then 26'. Add TPMS to the trailer too!
