OPINIONS NEEDED! Would you pull a 2,650lb. (260lb. Hitch wt.)travel trailer with a 2014 Transit Connect (class lll hitch) 2.5liter?

Is that the empty weight of the travel trailer?  Or is that the weight of the trailer, and everything inside of it?

 

You should be able to hitch it up, and get moving.  Perhaps a bit of a strain going uphill, and at highway speeds.  The extra strain on your engine and transmission should be considered.

 

The hard part will be stopping.  

 

It is never a good idea to tow beyond the recommended weight.  It just isn't safe.  

 

I would not do it.  You're better off renting a truck.
