of an Elite II will exceed the figure above. There is an Oliver
forum, owners are finding trailers weighing
6,500 to 7,000 pounds and tongue weights in the 800 pound +/- range. Typical tongue weight
of ~ 13% is a common target for safe towing. Inadequate tongue weight can lead to trailer sway, which can be very dangerous.
IMHo, pick the trailer that best meets your needs and budget, and then obtain the appropriate tow vehicle.
An Elite II is much different size and weight wise compared to the Elite.
