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.
Auto Transport reviews in Rathdrum
They called and picked my car up a few days early I was in no rush as my sister was receiving the car which arrived today
I would for sure recommend this company
I have had to move frequently in my life, and this was the worst company I have ever had to deal with. I have never had a complaint with a moving company in the past, but this time was a disaster. These guys are the worst.
I hired them to load a POD, which I was using to move to my new home.
Their unprofessional packing of the POD resulted in significant damage to my property. They placed wooden furniture next to a metal cabinet, placed too much weight on a
When I had the POD unpacked at my new home, the professional movers who were doing the work were shocked by the poor quality of the packing, noting each time as they unpacked the POD how things had been placed in an unprofessional and hazardous position.
I noted all of their concerns and took photographs of the damage.
When I contacted
After two months and repeated attempts to get them to call the movers that had unloaded the contents and to acknowledge the damage, I contacted the Better Business Bureau to file a complaint.
The response of
First, they blamed me for not having providing moving pads, although I had provided moving pads. Then they said that I had not provided enough moving pads, although the movers did not ask for more pads. They said that I, the layperson, should have inspected the contents to make sure everything was safe. If I could load the POD myself I would, but the reason you hire a professional to do work is because they supposedly know their work. In this case,
Then they suggested that someone had entered the POD after the door was closed and moved the contents around. This was not the case as I had placed a shipping lock on the outside, and I had the only key. The lock was in place when it arrived.
After they had blamed everyone else, they simply said, "It's in the contract. We have no responsibility."
So - that's the lesson with this company. They will not accept responsibility for anything, even when it is clear that their workers did a poor, unprofessional job and your property is damaged.
Car arrived one time, if not early in great condition.”
