Forget the trailer, its just more weight to drag. Your pickup should be up to
Tranny, brakes, and tires.

If you don't have good truck tires, this is a good time to get them. I have
load-range-E tires on the Burb, and I run the rears at the max-rated 80 PSI
when I'm towing my enclosed car trailer. I suggest you do the same for this
Secure the planer as far forward as you can in the box. But you knew that.
