We have a 27DSRL, and love it. DW can be in the bedroom watching TV and I will read in the living area without having to hear the TV.

My TT weighs 5834 empty and the tongue weight is between 900 and 1000 lbs.
Total loaded weight is about 6800lbs. All weights are CAT Scale.

Be sure you have the payload capacity to tow it. You do not need LT tires.
My P-Rated tires are rated more than 800lbs over my rear axle rating. They are Michelin XLT m/s 2. I run them at 44 lbs when towing.

Mine truck came with those tires. I had a different experience. They did not wear well. I replaced two that were worn out even though they were rotated every 5k. Went with Michelin LTX ms2 and they had sidewall cracks.

Now I have Firestone Transforce HT's. So far , so good.
