The actual weight of the trailer is fine. A couple of thoughts to consider:
-tongue weight: unless you've weighed the tongue to be 310lbs, it'll probably be significantly higher when actually loaded up with battery, water, AC unit and supplies. Published tongue weight is given without those items. The rear springs on the outlander are particularly soft and you'll be dragging the rear end with that weight on there. I would add airbags inside the rear springs and also a weigh distributing hitch. You want to spread the weight to both axles of the outie.
-The outlander has a relatively short wheelbase, so anti-sway equipment would add a degree of safety. The trailer should be fine under normal conditions without it, but in an emergency or heavy winds, it can be very helpful.
-I would tow in 4wd and keep speeds under 60mph. The biggest resistance from the trailer will be from the wind once you are rolling. Lower speeds reduce that somewhat.
We have an 18ft travel trailer (3700lbs GVWR and probably 500lbs tongue when loaded)that we tow with our sienna. I have airbags in the rear springs and use a Reese trunion style WDH with 600lb spring bars. Works very well and the sienna has no sag in the rear with this setup. The sienna also has quite a bit longer wheelbase, but is FWD only. I have only hooked the trailer up to the outlander without the WDH attached to move it around to the front of the house and the rear end sagged a great deal. I'd get bags for it and use the WDH if I were planning on towing with the outie.
I've attached a picture of ours.

The factory hitch is rate a class II or class III ? Would I be able to put stabilizer bar ? Continue to give me info on the towing experience .
