The data base has no provision for lighter trailers 1000 to 2300 lbs and no adjustment for lower cars with a 8% tongue requirement; or listing for cars. Many at this web site pull light weight
trailers, 10' 12' 13' 14' or 17' and are well under the 2500 lb limit of this table. It would be good to get or make one for our fellow members. It could have base ratings and upgraded ratings such as with and without tow package. wd, brakes
, tansaxle cooler, hp, wheel base, even experienced uses would gain this would be hard to make so many factors such as hills and how steep is ok; our area has a lot of steep hills we go up and down them a lot. One is even so steep on rainy days the car tires
