    I am looking for an expensive camper trailer for my 2013 Prius C.
    Any suggestion?

    Don't you really mean "INexpensive" ?

    About the only thing that a C will pull reliably is a very small "pop-up" tent camper.
    And even then it might be over the stated capacity.

    I pop-up IS beyond the two capacity of a Priussy on paper and (probably) real world as well.

    I saw a camping thread herein where somebody used a camping screen house with a Prius.
    That looked fairly interesting.

    If I absolutely HAD to camp with a C-type I would probably look at the smallest/lightest pop-up that they make and use it CAREFULLY.

    People tend to confuse 'towing' with 'pulling' and forget that it can be a little dangerous to tow a 3,000 pound object with a 2,500 pound object.....especially if you want to do trivial things like turn, and stop.

    Tractor trailers often tow/haul objects that are much heavier than they are, but they are purpose-built for this task, and much more importantly, special training and licensing is required.......and often THEY get out over their skis on the road......

    Google "runaway ramp"....;)
