How much does your HHR weigh?

You are correct on the weight, plus or minus a few pounds. I have to check the camera to see if it is still back there. This ISL 400 smokes it on.

I tow a 2006 Cadillac CTS using a Remco lube pump. Towing equipment is Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain bar, Roadmaster brackets for toad, and Roadmaster cables/wiring. My braking system is SMI Play-In-Stay Duo.

I'd do the same setup again.

I will know after tomorrow. I ran it around town yesterday and it seemed fine. I really couldn't tell it was back there. I come from the Fiver world so this is all new to me. This will be our first trip of any distance. I'm still getting my feet wet driving this tank. My Fiver was 38 feet long and I pulled it with a F250. that didn't seem so big. this does!
