Robert, about towing 2700 pounds with your 5K....for my 1990 200
(automatic) the owner's manual specifically states a limit of 950
pounds for trailer towed. You have to be patient and read through a
number of pages, but it is in there.
I do not recommend your attempting to tow a 2700 pound trailer, for
1) No manufacturer I know of makes a HITCH rated for that weight.
The DaLan hitch on my car is one of the few available, and it has a
2,000 pound limit. 2700 is too much.
2) I seriously doubt your vehicle is designed to pull that much
weight. Even if I double the weight allowance for a stick tranny,
you're too high - almost 3x my specification.
I recommend you use another vehicle for this type of towing.
1958 Fiat 1200 Spyder "Transformabile"
1983 Datsun 280ZXT
1990 Audi 200
