Would you pull a 2,500 camping trailer with a 3,500 capacity OB Wilderness?

Hi. Hubby getting ready to sell F150 and order a 2022 OB Wilderness XT. I have a dream of owning a certain fiberglass trailer and am wondering how this is going to work. Has anyone pulled a 2,500 trailer with the Outback 3,500 towing capacity? Please share. (I called the trailer manufacturer and was told this was perfectly fine but would like to hear from an OB/trailer owner.)

If you are going to tow occasionally I'm sure the Wilderness XT will be sufficient but if this is intended for frequent or long distance towing I'd get the Ascent with a 5000 pound tow rating and 500 pound tongue weight, particularly if the dry/empty weight of your trailer is 2,500 pounds. If it's 2,500 pounds fully loaded it should be fine with the Outback.
