Bought our first teardrop in 2010. (900#) Pulled it with a Toyota Corolla for six years before upgrading to a Subaru Outback. Bought a new teardrop this year (CampInn 550 Ultra weighing about 1100#). I've done a lot of research on towing and capacities. You have to add the weight of your trailer to all of your gear and the weight of the passengers in the vehicle. With our Corolla we were at the max (manual said 1500#). Our 4 cylinder 2.5 liter Outback has a capacity of 2700#. I would guess we are at 1700# loaded and would not consider towing more weight than that.
The Outback has a bigger engine and a longer wheelbase (it's considered a wagon). There is a lot of debate out there about specific vehicles and what you should and shouldn't use to tow. Won't get into that. A lot has to do with how you drive.
We've taken both trailers out to Utah and back safely. On interstates I cruise at about 67 to 69 which puts you in line with most semis. Uphill and downhill I watch the tach not the speedometer keeping it under 3000 rpm. Stay in the right lane as much as possible avoiding sudden lane changes. Also try to avoid quick stops and starts.
If you're only taking short trips you might be okay but I would consider upgrading your vehicle if long trips are in the future. I've got about 30k miles experience towing a tear drop if that matters. Owner Craig at CampInn has been pulling his teardrops with Outbacks for years.
