Well, Hyundai got caught overstating HP and Hyundai, Kia, Mitsu, Ford and Chevy have all been called on the carpet for overestimating mpg.
I thought of Jewel when I read that story.
"The basic speed law in California does not say you are guilty just because you were over the limit as long as your speed was safe and prudent for the conditions. On the other hand, in California if the officer used radar and the prosecution cannot justify the posted limit, the officer violated the law by using an illegal speed trap," said Geo. "

Most of them are so much better than they were just a decade or so ago. Not a lot of people enjoy the process all that much though. Since you are here doing your research, you'll be well prepped to deal with the purchase.
My brother had one for a year not long ago - they liked it but went bigger. Now they are downsizing again. Maybe.
Anyway, they towed it mostly with a '13 F-150, but sometimes with their '13 Odyssey.
The advantage of the pop-ups is that they don't have much windage. So, like smaller boats, they are easier to tow than boxy trailers.
Maximum towing is 2,700 so yeah, you have a good margin there. I don't tow so someone else can weigh in (@texases?), but the trick is to remember to count the stuff in the Subaru (including yourselves) as you add up the pounds, and don't forget the jugs of water and groceries.
I kind of understand where your hubby is coming from - towing can be hard on a vehicle and as you approach the weight limits, it seems that your margin of safety decreases. But I have trouble convincing people to do like we do and get a tent.
