First check the towing specifications in the owners manual for YOUR vehicle. It appears that the maximum towing limit from on-line sources is 1000 lbs without trailer brakes
, 1500 lbs with trailer brakes
. But again, check your manual, that's the absolute word.
Here is a link to typical weights of trailers loaded and ready to go. They were made at an owners rally

Aside from common sense and liability/insurance issues, there have been mentions on the site about excessive mechanical wear in a Subaru attributed to towing over maximum weight
with that particular Subaru.
You have a tough nut to crack as only the smallest FGRV's will fit your towing specifications, but we love our Hunter Compact-II at 1300 lbs.
Be sure to ask lots of questions.
