Anyone know the tongue weight of an 05 LSV with single axle trailer? Looking to buy a trailer hand dolly. Found 1 in Northern Tool for $29.99 but don't know if 600 lb capacity will be enough.

A good rule of thumb should be between 5% and 10% of total weight of the loaded trailer for calculating tongue weight, i.e., 4000# trailer loaded should have no more than 400# tongue weight.
.
Less than 5% or more than 10% starts to present towing problems like swaying.

Hope this helps
