Dan , I see several posts a day on various boards with "Can I pull #### with my ####? , it's as simple as checking the tow ratings on your vehicle (usually noted in the vehicle manufacturers owners manual)
Quite often people assume because they can pull it, it's ok. The truth is tow ratings are also based on how much you can safely stop...not just how much you can pull. Horsepower, torque,tire size, gear ratio and wheelbase are also a factors taken into consideration when deternining a rigs tow rating. A loaded trailer without auxilary brakes
that exceeds the cars tow rating, bearing down on a tow rig with a short wheelbase going down hill can cause a severe case of the tail wagging the dog in an emergency stop.
Insurance companies may not cover you if you exceed the limits the vehicle is rated for and you're involved in an acccident.
Since your 13' Boler
is very similar to ours,with no heater or 3-way fridge
, (noticed a lack of vents on the side)...You are about 850lbs dry, with about an 85lb tonque weight
. I would think just about any vehicle can pull 900lbs but remember to make allowances for water, camping gear, propane
etc. it adds up pretty fast.
BTW nice XJ, Looks familiar, ever go to the RMH Jamboree?
