Setting up a Toad

I have a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind Storm 30H, 99 F53 Chassis, V10 w/Banks Power. I would like to tow my 2002 Dodge Durango 4.7 4x4 w/ a neutral switch, GVW 6400 lbs.

I am hoping that someone has had success with a similar type setup and save me countless hours of research

I have pulled a 20 foot enclosed trailer (7000 lbs empty) with a 2000 31 foot class C v 10 I had 10 years ago with no problem, so I assume my Storm will handle the weight but I also realize I will need some type of braking system.

Thanks in advance for your help

My first guess is your MH is not rated at more than 5000# but you can check that, and the hitch is also 5000# or less.
