I guess Chevrolet does not recommend towing But in reality couldn't you tow a 2000 pound pop-up camper???

most tow limits on vehicles are set based on 1) how much weight the vehicle can safely stop without ruining your brakes and 2) tongue weight. Tongue weight is typically 10% of the total weight of the trailer+load being towed.

I towed a 600lbs trailer with by chevy cobalt, but the tongue weight rating was 100 lbs so i wouldn't have tried towing over 1000lbs.

Too much

You are right dan. I read the numbers wrong, maybe a 1,000lb 4x8 super light trailer, not 2,000lbs. I like your numbers
