You need two more numbers before you can get an intelligent answer. Towing capacity and GCW (gross combined weight). Both should be in your owners manual. If not, see your dealer. You should not exceed either.

how about 10,000 lbs and 17,000 lbs ,does that sound about right ?so towing a dry weight trailer of 3640 should be a breeze.....right ?

For a systematic way of evaluating this, try this link.
The spreadsheets show all the relevant required data.

This helped me with my decisions on TV.
