the system your describing is fine for your vehicle, just remember that the car will turn and drive a little different from the standard weight schedule and factory specs,, however , it will be just like having 2 Big adults in the vehicle all the time, so you should have no worries, the ****** weight your seeming to be worried about is within the limits, here is that described If the ****** of the trailer does not exert enough downward force on the tow vehicle's hitch ball -- meaning that the trailer's ****** weight is too light -- a dangerous condition called trailer sway could result. If the ****** weight is too heavy, the steering of the tow vehicle will be affected.
in my opinion ,why not install the biggest one so that you can tow anything in the future because the price difference in buying and installing is verry little. as far as the toung drop after your hitch is mounted on truck just measure camper heigth in comparisom to hitch receiver on truck and buy the correct one
You can buy an adapter that will go in between your rear lights & main harness under van at connector, that will allow you to hook it up correctly. If it's a small trailer & no brakes on it, you may get a way with a flat 4 connection, provided your signals & brakes light use same bulb, otherwise you will need a small inline converter wired in also. Get back if you need more clarification. If only flat 4 and no brakes req'd, you can splice in to wires inside rear hatch that go to tailights. You decide & let me know if you need help. P.S. All you need is a test light (12v) and some connectors.
I checked the Reese site, and there is one available #77167 Insta-Hitch 1 which is a class 1 rating, drawbar #3594. Keep in mind that your Elantra is limited to towing 750 lbs WITHOUT trailer brakes, and up to 1500 lbs WITH trailer brakes. The installation of the hitch claims to be 'no drilling' but the exhaust system must be lowered for installation (then returned to position), and some 'trimming' of the cars fascia must be done. Take into consideration the terrain you intend to drive through. If there will be a lot of hills, you will struggle to accelerate, and braking w/out trailer brakes on long hills will overheat and reduce your stopping ability. Remember to figure in weight of passengers, luggage, and anything you put in or on the trailer, car roof rack etc. Good luck, and safe travel to you. Curt
