Cargo Trailer towing

We are looking at towing a 7 x 14 cargo trailer with our 2017. It will be a full aluminum trailer with brakes, so weight will not be an issue, I project max 3500lbs, including trailer.

My concerns are more how it will handle side winds and such.


Anyone with experience towing a cargo trailer?

I don't imagine it would be much different than pulling a boxy travel trailer, which many have done with much success. You'll just need to be mindful of properly securing your load and weight distribution of your cargo.

Vspec...you should be fine!
Here is the specs on my trailer.
I do get a bit of wind deflection. But if you getting a V nose trailer it should tow better.

Yup the plan is for a Neo with a V-nose 7 x 14.
