Upgrading to a 3700 lb dry weight camper.
Currently have an rpod 171, about 2,400 dry weight. T3 TDI has always towed it fine. (i can set it to cruise at 65 on the hwy easily and it holds 7th and 8th south of NC).
In NC, heading up to parkway, she seemed to have to work hard, but did seem to have power. Had to drop to 3rd, sometimes 2nd on step very windy roads where you could only go a max of 30mph anyway.
I assume an extra 1,000 lbs of cargo (which is probably a little high). So that is 4,700lb.
I am looking for, not IF it can do it, buy how much strain and tow quality.
