    well your basic car weighs in at 2500 or more unless it a CRX so I would get a bigger one since it has to be pulled up the ramps and the will ad more stress to the winch.

    For trucks/4x4's it's recommended to have a winch with double the capacity of the weight of the vehicle. this can/is usually overcome with... block and tackle? (can't remember the term for the life of me) basically a pulley system. More pulleys=more force pulled.

    It would be a pain to deal with block and tackle for loading a car on the trailer. I would go big on it. You never know what you may need to winch onto the trailer later on down the road. Once word goes out that you have a setup like that chances are you start getting phone calls for help from friends.
