    I'm looking to pull my Integra on a Trailer, behind a vehicle, but I have a 3500 towing capacity, the car weighs 2700 lbs, can I get a trailer that is less than 800 or maybe lower?

    Light, aluminum trailers....I think the open car trailer they had was under 680lbs. Not cheap though....

    Follow this link for a bunch of trailer links: [url="http://www.sccaforums.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000107.html"]http://www.sccaforums.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000107.html[/URL]

    There are quite a few different Aluminum trailers, including [url="http://www.Trailex.com"]www.Trailex.com[/URL] .

    You don't mention the tow vehicle, but you'll want a frame hitch, electric brakes, and maybe, some sort of load equalizing and sway device.

    Unless your vehicle has a tow package, you'll want to think about a transmission cooler and some way of isolating the trailer lights from the tow vehicle. Trailer lights can play havoc with the electrical system of newer vehicles.

    Well I've been thinking about getting a Suburban for the family, or maybe getting a Acura MDX. While the Suburban is clearly the tow leader, I like the MDX more.

    If you're not planning on towing anything heavier than the ITR, and you like the MDX better, you'll hate yourslef for getting the Suburban. Although if you're planning on doing ALOT of towing though, you'll be happier with a bigger tow vehicle, as towing a 3500 lb trailer with a 4000 lb car can be tiring on long trips.
