You probably saw this, but good info here. Interesting that they include frontal area.

"Towing performance is maximized with
a low-drag, rounded front design trailer"

Good test here although of course a small car trailer is different aero wise.

Well, i decided to take the safe route and picked up a 2023 GMC Canyon Denali. 7700lb tow rating with a 700lb max tongue weight. Should have zero issues with the 16rb Caravel now.

Enjoy your new truck! And Caravel. This sounds like a good combination.
