.

Please do some research/reading on the web
regarding the definition/meaning of "towing capacity".

The actual weight you can tow is not as much as most people thought.

Towing capacity is towing capacity, no mystery there. It is a maximum amount of weight that can be towed while staying within the limits of other parts of the vehicle such as GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating) and GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating).

Lastly hitch (tongue) weight must be considered. Tongue weight is also specified by the manufacturer and if you happen to be over on tongue weight but below GCWR then you could adjust the load in the trailer and put more weight behind the axle.

GCWR maximum combined vehicle and trailer weight for the gas Promaster 3500 is 11500 lbs.

Motorhome Magazine reviewed the Travato 59G and found the wet weight (tanks full, no passengers or gear) to be 7440 lbs. With a 4k trailer that's 11440 lbs combined weight, leaving only 60 lbs total available for passengers and gear combined.

Unfortunately just not quite enough capacity for towing your trailer except perhaps a single driver with half empty tanks and no gear.
