Maxwell the manual for our Jeep says it's weight is 3785. A lot of folks here tow vehicles no problem. A boat or other watercraft shouldn't be a problem. Not sure on the length but take a look

If you see other class A's towing stuff like this. Then I know a Newell can to!

I think most Newells have a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds.

ID:	2894Well Maxwell take a look at our set up. This trailer weighs between 24 and 26,00 pounds depending on which trip we're on. I've driven with the trailer behind for close to 250,000 miles and the Newell has always done the job!
