I pulled a 8000 pound 27 foot camper and a 10,000+ pound 27 foot cabin cruiser. Ya, no fun pulling that kind of weight.

Hope you get her fixed up right soon Man. Ya those requirements are bull. My Dodge dually weighs 5600, has a 10,500 tow capacity and I haul a 8600 boat and trailer conbo around all summer with no problems. Having trailer brakes makes a huge difference.
