    Hello,

    According to Google you can only tow 1,000 pounds. So YES you can but you have to be aware of your weight and size and you might be very limited on the size. Most importantly you packed weight, after you fill it up.

    Thanks

    It appears that vehicle has a tow rating of only 1000 pounds. There are very few popups that are under 1000. You might be able to find a bare bones 8' older popup under 1000. Sadly a lot of newer popups are all above 1000 now. They do make a true tent on wheels called a Sylvansport pro that can work.

    How much does your camper weigh? If it is the one in your profile, then no.

    Absolutely not, look at the picture in her profile and read previous post. A Rogue is a very small SUV and not meant to tow anything really.

    Always keep in mind that most auto manufacturers interchange the terms "Tow Capacity" and "Cargo Capacity". Meaning that anything you put in the vehicle other than the driver, is considered cargo. This includes passengers. So I would say "NO" your tow vehicle can't handle towing a camper.

    Pull A popup? Yes
    Pull YOUR popup? NO.

    Okay the popup in my original picture is a double axel. That is not the one. The one is a 1997 Palomino that is 1170 lbs.

    Sorry but you are still overweight before you load your Rogue.

    As stated above. You are still over the tow limit. So, no you cannot tow that one either. The Rouge is not a suitable vehicle to tow much of anything.

    I'm sure it would pull it, stopping it would be a different story.
    You wouldn't be safe or legal pulling much of anything with that car, unless you could find one of the small tent trailer that are meant to tow behind a motorcycle.

    Looks like Artist60164 trying to do the right thing concerning towing with her Rogue came to the wrong place for answers.
    So many opinions here I bet it is even more confusing than when she first posted her question.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. It was a good effort.

    I don't think it's confusing, car is rated to tow 1K lbs.
    Trailer is 1170 ish dry, pretty clear that it's not going to work. It won't be safe, and if an accident were to happen it would open them up to liability no matter if it was their fault or not.
    Liability and attorneys are what determines tow ratings in the US, not car makers.

    Easy answer is a bigger TV or a smaller trailer, might not be the answer that the OP was looking for, or the cheap solution at all, but it's the answer.

    I'm sorry if anyone gets mad about not getting the answer they wanted, but I think that this forum is much better about it than others I frequent.
