Hello! Newbie to the RV world. We’re looking into purchasing an Outback trailer. The dry weight is ~5600lb. We have a Jeep Grand Cherokee and the haul capacity is 6200lb. Is this a sufficient buffer for all of our belongings, food, etc. or should we look at a lighter trailer? Thanks in advance!

Well, "dry weight" doesn't include water and propane, so after you add those items you won't have much capacity left for food, pots/pans and cooking stuff, clothing, etc.

Here's a link that may help you decide.

Don’t forget aero dynamics affects towing at highway speeds a good bit...
