Anyone using the Canyon or Colorado.

I pull a 2016 Wrangler JKU Sahara 4 door that weighs around 4400 lbs with some fuel and other odds and ends loaded for travel. Our Navion weighs around 10,600lbs fueled and loaded for travel. Together the combined weight is 15,000lbs and the GCWR limit for them is 15,250, so we're under by around 250lbs. We're pushing it, as you say.
As long as you load up both vehicles with everything you need including fuel, and get the vehicles weighed, and do the math, you should be OK. Those 2 suggest a weight around 4100lbs each on the Dinghy Towing Guides. You'll need to know the specific loaded weights of both vehicles, before you try towing either. If the trucks prove a little heavy, you might be able to shed some weight in your Navion, like water for example. It's all about the math, and what you weigh loaded up.

Check the curb weights as the smaller pickups are nearly as heavy as a full size 1500 pickup. Curb weight on the Colorado anyon is 4,488 lbd for crew cab with 4WD. The Chevy Silverado 1500 crew cab 4WD truck has a curb weight of 4,815 lbs or only 327 lbs more than the Colorado and with a roomier cab and more space in the bed.

The Colorado has more payload and towing capacity than the Canyon and in general the GM trucks cost 10% more than a comparable Chevy pickup. But if I was choosing it would be a 1500 class pickup and one from Ram or Ford.

Wrangler will have a curb weight of 4200 lbs or more so not much difference. Serious weight savings come from a sedan like the Toyota Corolla iwth a curb weight of 2840 lbs or a Fiat 500 with a 2440 lbs curb weight.
