220 drive is nothing. over load that sone of a gun all you want, lol. The weight of the trailer is less of an issue if it has trailer brakes which will stop the trailer leaving the truck to stop itself and the TC.
Tongue weight is important for tires and suspension. Airbags or heavy springs can hold more weight so the weak link will be tires or wheels up to a point.
4,000 lb trailer is not really heavy.
a 3/4 or 1 ton truck is ample, and people haul 30,000 lb trailers with 3/4 ton diesels all the time.
Read through all the post over the years discussin this exact topic to death.

As far as land, yes, most likely surbaban areas ban camping even on your own lot.

yes this sounds like are gobberment protecting us in fairness there are protecting porteriey values like.
edit: this campinping w/ the truck camper on my own wet lands, I'm thinking way back in the wetland much less regulated.

the squatting I write of is tempuary while erecting a camping shack.

after crunching the tow capacity # comparing my gtm360 SUV to a 1500 either silverado or a convention express the G360 is twice for the better.

current short plan emphasize on camperizing the vessel w/ completeing the full canvas behind cabin enclosure.

this will like double the inside area of the vessel.

allready have the top of canvas essential for shade, roll down sides would be easy.
I think my plan to reuse some camping equipment on both the TV and the vessel should be considered unrealistic, except for the generater.

so next I makes canvas sides,
what type inzsee glass do you Guys recommend last time I ordered some cheaper chinese stuff I think ordering from them is on hold for a while.
plan on mounting my coleman gasoline 2 burner to the bow next to escape hatch
this is as far away from any fuel fumes located in rear /side of vessel.
