Welcome to the Z from NC! Glad you joined, enjoy the site!

I bought a 2004 Hi-Lo 27T a couple of months ago that's about 5k or so with the water tank full. They tow great but it's tough hitting the hills with my 2005 Ram 5.7 with the tow package. If you don't have the tow package, not sure I would want to tackle that weight. My guess is with 5 people, all the luggage & camping stuff you'll be very close to maxing out on your vehicle haul/tow weight. Also they Hi-Lo's tend to be a little heavy on the hitch weight so you'll probably need to look into a equalizing hitch.

Watch your GVWR and your Carry Capacity,your hitch weight will be added to your carry capacity,and how much stuff you put in your trailer. It adds up very quick,
