Maybe I should specify that we tow with a 2014 Terrain.
We would prefer a Trillium but are open minded as long as the poodle agrees.

Go here to get "Trailer Weights In the Real World":
http://lakeshoreimages.com/spreadsheets/Weight.xls

These are actual loaded trailer weights as weighed at various FGRV gatherings.

As you see there are tongue weights listed. The maximum tongue weight may be listed in the towing section of your owners manual, though properly loaded a 1500 lb trailer should have a tongue weight of 150 lbs.

Based on these real world figures it's liable to be slim pickins. Does your owners manual give a higher tow rating if the trailer has brakes. Many do.

Welcome to the forum and good luck in your search.

We are selling our little 13' 1973 Boler "Eggroll". It is awesome, but we are looking for a larger airstream that we can spend more time in. We bought it last spring and have transformed it: new paint inside and out, new exterior brake and running lights, new electrical and plumbing lines, new floor, spruced up the cupboards, replaced the old icebox with a sassy wine fridge and had all new cushions and curtains made. Previous owner put on new tires. Body and frame in excellent shape. All ready to hit the road. Asking $6,000 OBO. Located in 1000 Islands, Ontario. PS - Our Poodle Loves It. Check out the photos in my album.
