Default SUV towing

Hi,
I own a 2017 Ford Edge which includes a towing package. Towing capacity is 3,500lbs. Are there any HiLo's that I can tow.

Thanks for any information

The 3,500 towing cap may be a bit high for the Edge. Many companies list a higher capacity for advertising glitz. With a fully loaded 3500lb trailer, you may end up with the tail wagging the dog. Keep this in mind when looking for a small Hi Lo.
Check the reference library for the brochures, these will list the gross weights of each trailer. But again, caution as the trailers OFTEN weigh MORE than listed-- the propane tanks, A/C and many optional components are not part of that listed weight!

I have a HiLo 1508t in excellent condition, which I am selling. The dry weight is 2250 lbs. Fully loaded, we calculate 2,500 lbs. We tow with a Honda minivan, rated at 3,500 lbs, and have had no problems. Contact me at dkeen673@aol.com if interested, and I will furnish photos. David, in N. Florida.

No! Maybe a 17' tow lite, if you verify the actual weight of it.
