Hi Karen Lee, and
Can you tell us what the towing capacity of your Camry is? It should be listed in the owner's manual. Also check out what it says for trailers with and without brakes
. And whether you need to subtract the weight
of passenger(s)/cargo in your car.
If your limit is 1500# you can probably squeak by as long as you are very careful about what you bring along - and brakes
would be a good idea; if it is 1000# there really aren't any "normal" eggs that would work (maybe a teardrop).
(I had an older Camry years ago, and I think the capacity was 2000#, but I'm sure they vary by year and model.)
The next most important thing is to know what any individual trailer *actually* weighs. Many sellers (and even builders) say that a 13-er is "900 lbs" or "light enough to tow with any car," but actual scales have shown that it's a rare trailer that is under 1200# and many weigh more. (1500# to 2000# loaded is not unheard of for a 13-footer). Granted, a few do weigh 1095# or the like, but obviously even those would not work unless your capacity was 1500# or so, since you need to add at least some gear, a spare tire, etc.
So, if you have at least a 1500# tow capacity, I think you will be able to find an egg, as long as you stay with one of the lighter ones. In general, I would say to look towards the earlier Boler/Scamps, the Compact/family, original Trillium
1300, and Burro
. Trailers with bathrooms are going to weigh more, in general (most of them 13-ers have Porta pottis instead).
The Casitas, Bigfoots, some newer Scamps, and the U-hauls are going to be a bit heavier - but again, it really really depends on the individual trailer. It's critical to get them weighed, pre-purchase, or view a weight
slip from a scale that the PO has. Don't go by factory specs or owner claims unless they are verified (not that everyone is trying to deceive you, but many people just don't realize, or figure factory weight
Happy shopping, and if you let us know about your Camry's tow capacity we will know where to start in perhaps pointing you to some likely candidates.
