Since this is a Nash and not an Arctic Fox, you will need to add the wt of any options above the standard ones. Typicaly the Nash with the Nash Pack options is within 500lbs or so of the AF weight. Also that 26x has a huge slide on the front which adds to its tounge wt. I think that Ken's calculator is very realistic - and his shared experience is worth reading.

I have a Nash 26X as you can see by my sig. My experience is I towed it about a year with a 3/4 ton. I knew I had a load but thought I was doing OK. When I got the dulley I could really see the difference. A LOT better stability. I am not saying you can't do it with your 3/4ton but you will be pushing it. You will have pleanty of power etc. but you will probably experience big trucks pushing you around and you will need to run 8o lbs. in your tires (not good for ride). I run 55lbs on the dulley. Now I don't have any problem with the big trucks. With my 3/4T there were a few times when I went into a corner a little fast I could feel the TT pushing to the side. I never got into trouble but puckered up a little. I was running about 1400lbs under the GVW of the TT.
