Are many people here using a model 3 to tow a small travel trailer?

A small travel trailer like a Scamp 13, Casita or various teardrops tends to weigh about 1700 lbs or less. I was wondering if anyone here has some experience with that sort of towing? I believe that quite a few people (in California and maybe elsewhere) have had Stealth brand hitches installed on their model 3. I did that with my 2018 AWD LR model 3. Based on various specs such as horsepower and torque, it seems like the model 3 should be able to tow 1600 lbs or so without issue even up steep hills. Does anyone here have any experience with that?
