Also, the two axles will help in backing, because the trailer won't try to turn as easily, again the axles trying to keep things going straight. The 23 has more room inside, as well (duh!). As long as it doesn't exceed your tow rating, it would be a good choice.
@6000 pounds Its 92% of my 6500 tow rating loaded... It won't being "pushing" if I jump! Generally except for safety Im willing to put up some negatives on the pulling. I've pulled a bouncing Front end loader on a 30 ft trailer...

We bought our FC 25 RT in Feb 2014 and have pulled it over 4000 miles, 30 nights from FL to Canada this year. Our tv is a Toyota Tacoma long bed 4 door 4 wheel drive with a factory towing package, 5 speed automatic. The AS weights 5300 lbs. with a gvw of 7300. Based on the factory spec of 6500 lbs, tv and the 11000 total gvw we remain below although marginal at time below the weights. We average 13.5 MPH and have traveled through the Blue Ridge and Adirondack mountains, we tow at 55 MPH plus or minus 5MPH.
