Hoping to buy either a Hiker Trailer or Taxa Woolly Bear. Although having to tow the WB back from Houston to Seattle is a con against it. The Hiker is a bit better since it would only be from Denver, but there's a year lead-time on those.

Well my drift car weighs roughly 2200 pounds, and I'm not sure what the average open car trailer weighs, but if its more than 1000 pounds I'll be shocked. I'd be right up against that 3500 rating, but I think it would be ok. I've never towed before so I'm hoping it can handle that easy.

Probably will pick up a tear-drop or other small camper to tow. Although I love camping, I really love the idea of camping off the ground in something where I can be warm and dry.

21 ft Sea Pro. Just bought it a few months ago. Only other thing is my golf clubs, which I hope I won't have to turn funky or prop up. Anyone know the dimensions of rear storage? That would tick me off if they didn't build it wide enough for clubs lol. I'm a former club pro, so it matters 😛

Of I can find a trailer that weighs little enough (under 1200#'s) to tow the Miata, then the Miata. Also the McMotorcycle.

This is the question I need answered as well. Unfortunately, I don't think they are going to fit sideways behind the back seat. Drivers aroud 45-46 inches plus a few extra inches for bag, etc,,,, think i read somewhere the width of the cargo area is less than 45".

Can someone give me a towing education? I’ve never towed before.
I have my heart set on a new bronco. My wife has her heart set on a pop up tent trailer. I’m hoping to make both happen. Most pop ups seem to be between 2k-3k lbs dry weight. I just have no clue how close I can/should get to max tow capacity. Does the bronco seem reasonable for a pop up camper? Will the Sasquatch package hinder the towing capacity? Is there a chance the specs will be higher than 3,500 tow capacity, or is that gonna stick?
Weight is only one part of what makes towing one trailer or another easier.
Assuming you have two trailers that weigh the same, one is a travel trailer type “stand up headroom” and the other is a pop up, the pop up would be easier To tow due to the reduction in wind resistance.

I built a truck camper for my F250 long bed. I have since mounted it on a 5x10' open trailer which can be pulled by the bronco now.

That's pretty clever. How did you make it? How's the inside look?
