The Trillium weighs 1300 lbs, tongue weight 150 lbs, according to the spec sheet. I suspect it goes more than, plus the regular stuff that goes in a trailer. I know you have a CRV, I tried one and it felt underpowered, maybe it was that vehicle. Anyway I'm in no hurry and will keep looking.

Well in that case, Harvey, I'd suggest the V6. It's the same engine as in my Highlander, and it is very good for towing.

I had a V6 in a Ford Windstar, it didn't have much oomph but got the job done towing. Went to a Mercury Mountaineer with V8, thought it was much more powerful. But when I got the '08 Highlander with 270HP V6, it put the Merc V8 to shame. That Toyota V6 with 5 speed auto is great for towing.
