    Hello, I have a 2005 Saturn Vue with 3.5 V6 engine with
    towing capacity of 3500lbs. The Vue is equipped with a
    Class III hitch, 7 pin and 4 pin electric hookup and
    brake controller. The Vue has 17 inch Bridgestone
    dueler tires. I would like to buy a Trail Sport expanadable
    model TSE191. The Trail sport fully equiped with A/C and
    several smaller items shows a total dry weight of 3100
    lbs. and a hitch weight of 324 lbs. Can I safely tow this
    unit after adding two passenger weights and stuff. I am
    getting close to the max. allowed towing weight. We will
    not be towing on any mountains. If we go to the west,we
    will stay to the flat roads and visit attactions with the VUE
    after we unhook the trailer.Let me know you ideas.
    Thanks,
    Iggy :cool:

    You mean you aren't going to pick up 200# worth of tourist trap crap? :laugh:

    Sounds to me like you aren't going to have any fun until you actually stop and unhook that trailer....

    You may want to look into Bigfoot trailers. They have lightweight trailers you could pull in the 20 ft. range. They are fiberglass and aluminum and kind of pricy but may be what you need.

    Oh, boy! I'm always in trouble. You know that joke was stolen by the Texas Longhorn fans, because when I was young it was a "Little Moron" joke! 'member those?

    Texas Clodhopper, Is it still true that the winning team between the Aggies and the
    Longhorns get's to go the the Chicken Ranch?
