Thank you NCTelly and Frankie for your very kind and generous comments. I feel more confident than I did before that the Telluride will handle a teardrop trailer like the Rpod for my kind of camping. I don't even have the Rpod yet, I'm still researching to be sure whatever tow vehicle I get, it can handle my idea of a camper (teardrop, light, no big honking RV). I don't want to get a truck, I still commute to work and my wife and I like basic road trips so I need a car that will do both - ride well but can tow my small trailer when needed. Seems the Telluride falls within that category.
