    Hello , I have just bought me a 21ft travel trailer . Could anyone tell me could I tow this unit with my 03 Impala it's v6 3.8 . At present I have my boyfriend pulling with a S 10 pickup however it's a older model truck and doesn't have alot of power like the Impala .. I have the load distribution bars as well and brake control but is all on the truck at present .. Please help !! We haven't even got the chance to use the unit yet . We have had it a month and I want to ue it soon for pete sake .
    Thanks for any and all help

    My initial reaction is that you CANNOT pull this trailer with your impala. However, what does the 21 ft. travel trailer weigh? An automatic 4.3 V 6 Automatic
    S-10 could possibly tow this unit depending on its gear ratio etc.

    An Impala with your engine is rated to tow 1,000 pounds. Any trailer will weigh more than that.
