Feedback on Little Guy trailers

I'm considering a Little Guy 5 wide, for traveling solo, towed by Subaru Outback.
Anyone have experience with these. How does it tow?

You might not get a huge response considering this forum is focused on molded fiberglass. But there are owners with multiple trailers and some may have towed the Little Guy teardrop that you specify.
Link to LG Specs.
Curb weight is 900lbs.

We owned a Little Guy SilverShadow 5 wide which we pulled with a Subaru Forester prior to purchasing our ParkLiner. It tracked fine behind the Forester although the Forester was a bit under powered. If you decide to go that route, consider ordering your Little Guy with electric brakes. Ours did not have them and you really knew it was back there if were descending a long grade or needed to slow down quickly.

I had one. It went where it was towed.

I pulled it with a 4 cylinder Chevy Colorado. The only problem I had was that the Colorado was high geared and I smoked the clutch when backing the trailer into the shop or a tight space. It was harder for me to back than a longer trailer.

One time, I couldn't get it exactly where I wanted and I felt a strange thump. Three logger friends yelled, "We got it." They lifted it up and placed it in the right place.
