Check your owner's manual, making sure to look up the exact model you have. May also show on the nameplate - usually on driver's side door or door jamb. Read up on passenger/cargo effect too, because the "rated" capacity is with no cargo and only a normal (I think they use 150#) driver.
Quick web search showed rated from 1500-4000# towing capacity and tongue weights from 150-400# depending on model and if has towing package - so you would have to check tongue weight and total trailer weight, but a 700# travel trailer (assuming that is total weight, not empty) certainly is likely to be viable. What it can handle safely also depends on what else in in the vehicle and where it is located with respect to the rear axle - so if all the seats are filled with adults for instance, your towing capacity may go to zero.
My recommendation, especially if travelling at highway speeds or long distance, is never exceed 75% or rated trailer load. Also - read up on tongue weight and what it does for handling and vehicle steering ability, so you get it right - too much and you risk tralier hitch failure, rear tire overloading, and poor steering because too much weight is off the front end. Too little and the trailer will tend to "hunt" - swerve back and forth.

a call the next day to pick up the vehicle. The shipper did a thorough examination and report on the vehicle before and after shipment. The driver parked his truck down the street from our house in Illinois and did not require us to drive the car to his truck. Same thing happened on the Florida end where it was delivered. The driver was very courteous.
Considering all the horror stories I had read about car shipping companies, my expectations were not very high. However, the far surpassed the service I have received from other companies doing other businesses. There is no doubt I would use ”
We shipped vehicals seperately one. One of the drivers they contacted Lazie Auto Group was terrific. Very nice, responsive, and went out of his way to help with a smooth delivery. Vehicle arrive clean and undamaged.
Other vendor was not good. Philly Express Group They only gave us 2 hours notice to pick-up and deliver the car, supposed to be 24 hours. When we did not respond within 2 hours on the delivery they left the car in a lot 20+ miles away. The car was so dirty I could not inspect it for damage.
United Freight is handling my complaint with Philly Express group with concern and efficiency.
The driver was extremely polite and drove safely with all those huge trucks barreling by. We arrived in New
on the move of my mom's car from Florida to L.A. I was scheduled to be
on a plane the next day. I called
truck for me in five minutes and paperwork to me within ten. The truck
arrived three hours after I arrived in Florida and the move went off
without a hitch. The car was delivered in exactly seven days. I'm
pleased all around.”
