possible to pull If any?

That car has a listed maximum towing capacity of 1500lbs. And you can't have much tongue weight. I am looking for weights for pop-ups. So far, all the on-line brochures are not stating weight

http://www.camperpartsworld.com/RV-Carefree-12-V-Pop-Up-Camper-Lift.html A small one is feasible. But gear add up in a hurry..for example just 25 gallons of water is 200+ lbs. Add a propane tank. Food. Necessary gear, and specific gear for your tastes in what you do. This one is 12V and can run a few lights, etc. and be charged by your car... says the manufacturer....but car alternators are really not designed for that. I'm not saying never do it, just be careful.

BTW, that 1500lb number is with tow-package.
