So I have a 1998 dodge 1500 5.2 v8 with about 220 hp. I pull my 7x18ft 2200lbs landscape trailer with 2 1800lbs mower every day last summer and I don't have a trailer break controller in my truck. Is my truck under powered on hills, a little bit, is it hard to stop, it can be. My truck has not suffered. The only things I say to do is make sure you got trailer breaks and let the trailer take most of the weight.
