You will find a ton of material on trailer towing if you google it.
Typically you should not tow anything more than 50% of the towing
vehicle weight and keep speed below 55 MPH. A 4 cyl SUV probably
weighs 2500 pounds or less, so the empty trailer is almost at the
limits of what you should safely tow. A trip to your nearest U Haul
outlet will get you a lot of information on towing weights, towing
speeds and also if your vehicle is capable of towing what you want to
A lot depends on the distance you plan to tow the load also.
There is a copy of this thread somewhere else in this group. My reply is in
OP also multi-posted to rec.autos.makers.honda. I replied there, adding
proper crossposting to this group. Unfortunately, that left the original
thread somewhat of an orphan, even though the OP seems to be babysitting it
You see the problems multi-posting can cause?
