Question towing with my '06 Tucson

Great info on this site!! I'm a newbie to the site and will be soon to fiberglass trailers. I'm in the market for a 13' or 16' trailer. My '06 Tucson has a 2000 lbs tow limit w/ electric brakes. I know the 16' Scamp specs rate them at 1750 lbs. Does anyone know what the actual weight is with bath/shower package and "normal" items on board? I will be spending about 4 - 6 months traveling all over the country and don't want to kill my transmission.

Thank you
