    I am looking at a 2000 Coleman Sedona. My Kia will pull 2000 lbs with a 200lb tongue weight max. I see so many different weights. Can someone help? Can I tow this?

    The 2000 Sedona is 2200# gvwr with 165# tongue weight. The Base weight is 1534# Than add all the extras and you are at the max you can haul without any camping gear. So this is not really a good camper for you. You would be better off with a Taos of the same vintage Because they max out at 1500# & 135# on the tongue.

    Your not going to pull or stop it with the Soul.

    Hi Stacy and welcome to the Portal! As others have said the Soul is just not the right fit to pull a Sedona. I mean, yeah you can hitch it up and hit the gas and youre going down the road but It would put a lot of stress on the car and the biggest factor would be road safety. Hopefully you can find something that can work for you and the Soul.

    +1 on the Taos...

    I pulled a Taos, loaded with gear, with a 4 cylinder SAAB with no problems.

    I did utilize the trailer brakes, that was a must.

    There are 1300 lb small popup you can tow, but that's about it.

    2000 lbs is trailer and all cargo weight both in the trailer and the car.
