It weighs 4600 leaving you a margin of weight in your vehicle of 1400 lbs. six people and a cargo load may weigh more. That vehicle weight is of course with an empty gas tank
Get thee to a scale and find out if sans trailer you will be overloaded
I have the same size engine a lighter trailer and it's hard enough on it. We only have two people and basically backpacking gear. Our food is mostly dry
tongue weight on a 154bh is more around 350-390

I had a 184BH Baja and we were 5 people and we out grew it within 6 months, I suggest that you go a little bigger because I had the same thoughts when I got my 184...FYI learn from my costly mistake however I loved that trailer it was bullet proof, no issues.
