My Compact Jr. has several modifications that add weight
. The frame has been beefed up, air conditioner and dorm frig both add a little. I've never emptied all the stuff that is packed away inside and then weighed it. My guess would be around 200 lbs. of pots, pans, dishes, hoses, electric cords, heaters, lights
, etc. are inside. So, empty the trailer may weigh as little as 1200 lbs. I tow with a 2002 Toyota Sienna and have had no problems with power, stopping, or handling in 10,000 miles with this combination. I think the Uplander will do fine.
