2011 ford explorer
We have a 2011 Ford Explorer 4 wheel drive with tow package. We are shopping for a travel trailer for camping. Is anyone towing a trailer 4300 lbs dry weight? Or heavier? We were thinking the max dry weight is 4300 lbs leaving 700 lbs for water tanks, propane, food, camping gear, etc.

Initially we were shopping for under 4000 lbs but they are too small and would like to go bigger but not sure if it's a good idea.

I'm towing right around 5k with my '11 without a problem. I tow an '04 Mustang on a steel trailer.
