First trips in Boler 1300

So I have had 2 trips with my new to me Boler 1300. I went camping Labor day weekend and I attended a radio control airplane meet in N.Y. I really like the trailer and the whole experience! I put a 100 amp hr SLA deep cycle battery in. I'm experimenting with solar so I put a Renogy Adventurer solar charge controller and have 2 100 watt semi-flexable solar panels. I was going to build a frame to hold the panels but decided to buy a clothes drying rack and clamps instead. Here is my setup at the RC Airplane meet:

2017 Subaru Crosstrek with manual transmission. Seems to handle the trailer well.

I keep debating what vehicle to get to pull my Burro and wasn't sure about the 2.5 Subaru. Manual transmission would make a lot of the difference I think.

Just received my copy of Club Toyota magazine and for 2018 Toyota will be selling RAV4 Trail in Canada ( may be Adventure nameplate in US ). It has 3,500 lb tow capacity and Trailer Sway Control. Tow prep package includes upgraded radiator and supplemental engine oil and transmission fluid coolers.
I've been happy with my 2008 RAV4 Sport, towing my 17B Escape.

Rudy, the towing capacity of the Crosstrek is 1500 lbs. I think the Burros are heavier than the Boler so I would go with the Forrester or Outback which have towing capacities of 2500 lbs each.
