I've attached a pic of the boat and trailer. Will my new truck handle this thing? Boat weighs about 4500lbs and I'm guessing trailer is around 800-1000lbs. I know towing capacity is 7,000 but am I pushing it? Need your opinions. Thank you!
Reminds me of the time I sold a 26' Sea Ray sundancer, the buyer came with a dodge minivan. He had a 250 mile drive, I told him he wouldn't make it. Sure enough about halfway the tranny went. Sure wish I had taken a picture. My friends and I still laugh about it.

My suggestion is to get a bigger truck or find another boat local to you.
