Tow

Is there a lightweight travel trailer that a 2015 gmc awd 4 cylinder terrain can tow?

Welcome to the forum!

Looking at the Terrain specs, I'm guessing a 16' Sport is where you're headed with an AS.

If you are considering other trailers, I'm sure Casita makes something you could tow.

Looking like you are a right coaster

Casitas are based on the left coast ( I think ) When I was first looking, I didn't see many for sale around the NY area

You may also consider a Scamp. Might be easier for you to find, if you are looking used. If you want a new Scamp, you could order it ( they build them custom made per your requirements ) and pick it up. Look them up online. They are somewhere not too far from Chicago.

You could also research The TAB trailers. They make a few different sizes.

AlsoÖ.Shasta has reissued the old " Canned Ham " type trailers

Casitas are made in Rice, TX. They gave an extremely loyal following. I examined the Shasta Airflyte reissue. Looks coon but definitely NOT a quality unit that is built to last.

What does GMC list as the max tow and tongue weight?

4-cyl Terrain is really limited on tow capacity

4-cyl Terrain is really limited on tow capacity. Even the smallest Casita is too heavy. Maybe a teardrop trailer???

See page 17 of this brochure: Here's the link to the brochure, again: http://www.gmc.com/content/dam/GMC/g...wing-guide.pdf
