hi pinky, hope the trailer works out.
i am in the NOT camp and here's just a bit o'why.
ALL of the numbers u have referenced are useful, but need clarification.
for example the towing capacity is reduced by people, gear and STUFF in the suv.
find/post the suvz PAYLOAD, i'll assume it's ~1500 lbs for now.
the a/s tongue wt is only an estimate, doesn't include 60 lbs of lp gas OR a spare tire...
or any options installed ON/near the trailer nose.
so lets round it UP to 950 lbs and add a 50 lb hitch.
at 1000 lbs that leaves 500 lbs for people, gear, toys, fuel IN THE SUV (1500-1000)...
so a family of 4 or 2 hefty people and stuff...
or 1 human and a pack o'dogs...
will be OVER the gvwr for the suv.
((all of that would be TRUE for many burbons too))
the point is u need to explore these numbers a bit closer since the CAPacity of the suv in marginal.
can it work? sure.
do you wanna be AT THE LIMITS for each rating? U decide.
in contrast a 2010 f150 CREW CAB with the same basic driveline will have MORE towing and payload capacity.
with plenty of room STILL for 4-5 humans.
((add a tonneau or shell for gear))
i also don't like carrying gensets, camping stoves or other misc rv necessities...
in the SAME SPACE as people, as the STUFF may stink and move around while driving.
examine your rv plans, do they include MOSTLY short trips to local parks...
or LONG voyages over hill and dale?
and another important issue is trailer size.
will the 27 be the LONGEST stream u buy?
many/most folks upsize so buy a tow vehicle capable of ONE or TWO sizes bigger...
a 27 is right at the junction where long debates about 1/2 vs 3/4 ton vehicles happens...
with diesel EURO suvs in that mix too.
on EDIT, you've posted basically the same question in multiple threads...
this does little to get answers and only BUMPS them against each other...
while moving other ONE TIME posted stuff OFF the front page.
be patient, it's friday night.
folks will offer up answers in dOOOtime...
