Does this charter would be useful for Naomi calculations?

Travel Trailer Weight Calculator

I think so.

And to determine the weight of his tongue easily :

A Toyota Highlander is only 1" longer than an Outback. I towed with a Highlander for about 140,000 miles (work and play).

That's what we did for 30+ years. Good experience which will pay off when you are trying decide what to pack. When the time comes, try to make everything you carry dual use.

FWIW, scratch the Nissan Murano (1500#) and Dodge Journey (2500#) from the list of 3500/350 rated vehicles in my earlier post. I think at one time the Murano had a higher rating, but no more. I was simply mistaken about the Journey. So for Nissan and Dodge, like Toyota and Honda, you have to step up to a 3-row SUV.

For the 2012 Dodge Journey, the table shows in the book owner to be drawn 3500 pounds and 350 pounds on the tongue, respecting the configuration ...

I checked with the dealer, after reading 2500 pounds in other documents,
He said that for the Journey, 2012, respecting the table, there are no problems, it conforms to 3500 pounds.

The additional radiator for transmission was already in place.

I have weighed on the highway near my house and when I loaded, ready to go, the trailer weighs 2900 pounds.

When necessary to add water in the water tank, I expect to be there, not to add unnecessary weight on the road.

The 2500# figure I cited was from the Dodge website and applied to the 2016 model year. Looks like it was down-rated like the Murano.

Could be engineering changes, could be a consequence of the new SAE towing standard, could be a result of excessive warranty costs in vehicles used to tow, could be a marketing decision to sell more larger SUVs... hard to say.

For this same reason I checked with the company, web pages that did not have the same capabilities as those identified in my book owner.

I have a cousin who owns a Murano and has the same standards as my Journey 2012.
