I tow our 16 ft with a 01 dodge durango. 5.9L in it. I also have a 14 hyundai santa fe that I will be setting up to tow the trailer with too. IE tranny cooler, flat 4 to 7 pole wiring, with electric brake regulator, air bags for the hyundai and at minimum an antisway bar for the trailer.
Both rigs will pull the trailer just fine. I figure we have about 3000lbs when it is all said and done with our gear.
Guys, come on. We are talking about a single axle 16 foot trailer. The OP does not need a pickup truck to tow it. A FWD Grand Caravan with a tow package will tow it just fine since it has a 3600 tow capacity. I tow my 189 FBR just fine with a Toyota Highlander and Weigh Distribution hitch and it tows just fine on even moderately heavy hills and feels locked in even with cross winds. Sure my setup gets sucky mileage (11 mpg) but everyone gets that kind of mileage towing. Just keep the 16 footer light (under 2800 pounds) and a mini-van is big enough to actually break some of the wind resistance. If you want, you could actually go to a full size van with a big six or V8 if you want a little more power.
We are towing a 160X with a Kia Sorento AWD V6 and it does just fine without a WDH.
