It is easy to damage or destroy a tow vehicle if you try to tow more that the manufacturer has specified....safety is another concern...don't let the tail wag the dog.

Penny...good luck in your quest..always seek professional advise...there is much bogus advise on the Internet....know your sources for towing information.
I agree. One of the things I see often (and IMHO its a mistake) is folks looking for a trailer that works with their existing vehicle, rather than looking for a trailer that will meet their needs and their camping style. Tow vehicles change. We don't plan on changing the trailer like that.
