This is the only unit I can think of that might fit size wise.

Aliner Alite

You might consider motorcycle trailers. They usually combine a popup tent with a platform. If you want to go hardsided, I think you are looking at the Aliner Alite 400 or a teardrop.

Not recommending these as I have no personal knowledge of these products.

Lite Tent Camper

Roadman Campers

Easy Camper

Scooter Schooner

Okay, we all realize that the Fit's not a great tug, but in case anyone's interested...

The specs look like they were for a Ridgeline, the only Honda with a tow rating as high as 5000 lb... and it has a payload of 705 kg.

For those unfamiliar with the Fit, it is basically a Civic wagon/hatch, in an economy version. Should be a great car, but not a great tug. I agree that motorcycle trailers and small teardrops would be good matches.

On the other hand, I wouldn't be so concerned by the short wheelbase (for very small trailers), as at 2450 mm (96.5") it's no worse than the Jeeps (Wrangler and similar) which some people use to tow their 13' trailers.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
