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 Aberdeen
I got bids quickly from all 5 brokers. They were all similarly priced. I chose open transportation, which means the vehicles are carried on trucks without sides or tops, but these are the trucks that you see all the time carrying cars. Most followed up on the bids as well. I got my choices down to 2 brokers, and after calling the first one with no answer, I called
The driver that came to our house from the trucking company was professional, courteous, and friendly. He explained the process and we felt comfortable handing over our car to him.
It is a little weird to hand over your car to someone you don't know, but long story short, 10 days later, I was in Jacksonville, FL, and received a call from the driver hauling our car across the country. The driver provided me with details of his progress toward Florida. The following day the driver called again and he was close and we coordinated a time to meet. Right on time, the driver stopped his truck on the street right outside the address we provided, he drove our car off the truck, I paid him (the auto transport companies take cash, money orders, or cashier's checks - that's it), and he went on to Miami. The car was in good shape with no issues. Looked exactly like it did when we gave it to the trucking company representative.
I would use
Even though all the documents were finalized only 2 days before we wanted the car shipped,
The shipper that picked up the car was very professional. It took a day longer than originally stated to ship the car, which was OK, because the original time frame was VERY aggressive. There could have been a little more communication from the shipper with regard to this, but this was not on Executive Auto Shippers. The company that actually shipped the car was very responsive to texts and calls though, so we were able to get status updates quickly once we reached out.
The car was delivered intact and no worse for wear in St.
In chatting back and forth she requested specific pick up dates-- and managed to get my car picked up at the earliest timeframe possible and delivered within two days, which is completely unheard of for car transport. To put things in perspective, I booked and had another mover for the rest of my belongings four days prior, and this auto transport company delivered my car a week before the rest of my things even arrived in the same city!
I highly recommend
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 ”
