Oh goody! You're soliciting advice...
I'd search for a real weight
, maybe on the Aliner forum or the RV forum. The empty weight
is a useless number. The Ascape is not a molded FG trailer, rather it's a "sticky" or stick built trailer, so not really in our group's wheelhouse.
I don't get a sense of your prior camping experience so in terms of generalities: I don't know your ages which might influence the amount of roughing it you might want to do. It looks claustrophobic to my eye, much like a TAG (the TAB is much longer). Not something I'd want to deal with as an older camper. Still, many of us claim to spend all their time out of the trailer so a shelter of some sort is probably helpful if that describes you. (Clam-type popup shelters are popular around here.) But then, some of us chase down meteorites for the metal to pound out their own sporks and camp with a level of purity the rest of us don't strive for.
My last trip last fall
I saw handful of hard shell trailers much the shape and size of coffins-for-two so there appears to be no lower limit to hard shell camping. They kind of gave me the willies
though the campers themselves appeared content enough standing around shivering with hot coffee in their hands. I think you're aimed more towards a Scamp
13 with a bath. Aliners and tent campers need to be set up each time you want to enter them which I expects gets old pretty quick.
Lastly, I don't know if you're a member of the group that is trying to make an existing micro car tow a trailer (to exaggerate a little). As an engineer I feel obliged to point out that the laws of physics are not just a good idea, they're, well, the law.
There is a vague consensus (because we never agree on anything here) that the trailer purchase should precede the tow vehicle purchase.
But, not to worry, somebody will endorse pretty much anything.
