I have a dodge dakota 2005 with a v8 tow pkg equipped I pull 6.5x12 with upto 4 yds mulch, a WB 48" and a 48" riding ZTR and a 21" push mower I have racks for 2 trimmers and blower rack on front I have carried a ton and a half of gravel with no problems I have been operating it like this for over 2 year just about 80,000 miles since purchase and have been using it to haul for six years previously I only had a 5x10 with the WB on it. I also use a 3.7 dakota periodically and have only had it hooked up fully loaded once..wouldn't want to make it a regular hauler...I started 10 years ago with full size Ram 1500 and periodically will use it to haul I feel the 05 dakota is well equipped for all that i haul and just as good as the Ram 1500 except for the brakes need replaced more often than I'd like to have to

Those weights are correct though.
Ok, so I was wrong.... sorry, that just sounded heavy to me. Maybe my loaded trailer is heavier than I think
