Hope all this helps you figure out what is right for you.

RobertK,

Thank you so much for making such a detailed response. The information you provided is extremely valuable. I do have a 6 cal Terrain, rated at 3500lb tow capacity.
Looks like I will be traveling with a very light load. I don't plan on towing the T21 on any trips that will require major incline driving or extreme mileage.

Thanks again and happy camping

Dear Brimare57;

I'm glad you found the detailed technical information helpful. Question: Have you looked at your sticker on your door jamb of the Terrain to see what your rear axle maximum capacity is? I'd guess it is about 3000 pounds. With a V6 engine in your Terrain, you'll have sufficient power for towing on flatter terrain, but my biggest concern would be rear axle GAWR. Another option that can reduce tongue weight is adding a bike rack to the rear of the trailer. We did that and the extra 100# of bike weight on the rear of the trailer reduces the tongue weight by 100#. You can see the 2" x 2" receiver mount we use for our bike rack here...

Kindest Regards,

Robert
