Yeah, it would be cutting it close. I found out the trailer weight empty is 840 lbs. Like I said, gear is going in the car, so tongue weight would be lessened, but there is still the weight of trailer and load to consider.

One other scenario is to use a small HF open trailer for the two bikes, but that also may be cutting it close. The GVWR of this car is 4255, so when you back out the 3400lb curb weight, you are left with something like 882 lbs +/- for trailer and cargo. That seems really low, much lower than the 1000lb or so loads others have towed with this car. I figure our gear, bikes, empty trailer, and misc. tools and such would weigh in around 1245, plus the weight of me and my buddy of 170 each, brings the grand total to 1585 total weight of occupants and cargo. Would this be too much for the 1?

i think thats too much..
the ONE does not have a tow rating but i pull my ski which loaded with trailer is around 1k pounds. I would not go much higher.

you setup would be closer to 2k wet..
+ plus being enclosed less aerodynamic than my single jet ski..

your pushing it my friend.
