I’m deciding between the Premium and wilderness trims. As I understand it, only the Wilderness trim has 3000# tow capacity. All other trims remain 1500#, so says the Forester brochure, but it doesn’t talk about the increase in static load capacity. Will you fill me in on where I might find that info? $4000 more for the possibility of a rooftop tent, and rv trailer, might be worth it to me. Thanks!
