Towing with 2004 500 H.O.

A friend wants me to pull his pop-up camp out of his back yard, I wanted to ask anyone
if I would hurt my 4 wheeler if I did this. I just don't want to damage the rear-end or anything
else. Thanks to all

I guess it depends on how big of a camper it is, I pull my pop-up with my 570 no problem. Make sure you use low gear & go slow.

You might be over thinking this. If you're not doing hills, or need to stop it while at higher speeds, you can nearly tow anything. Here is a Rhino towing a trailer with atv and a sled on it. No hills or speed was done.
