As for the TT, if you want under 5k, ultralite in the 20 to 24 foot. I have been searching for that size myself.
For myself I would prefer a heavy trailer with more weight on the front. The light long units will wag the tail much more.
My friend had a light 30ft towed with a 2500 and a wind gust while doing a curve tip the trailer on its side.
