Sandy, Welcome! Glad you joined us. I have to ask, How many people will need to be sleeping in the trailer? Will it just be yourself and spouse, family, ? The amount of people camping with you will determine the type of trailer you will need to purchase. So I guess that is the best place to start, in order to help you find the type of trailer that would work for you as far as needs, wants, weights, etc. 3500 tow cap is reasonable as long as your not needing to purchase a large trailer for a large family. And a careful of what all you pack along. You most likely can find something that will work for you for many years.
