A midsize SUV with a 6 cyl. will work just fine with any of these trailers. The extra tongue weight
of the 17' Casita
dropped the rear end of my SUV just over 2". Had to purchase a Weight
Distribution Hitch to bring it back up to level but I like the extra security it gives me while towing so I'm glad to have it. Have towed many thousands of miles since our purchase and have never once felt the trailer sway so as Tom said it has more to do with the trailer being improperly loaded.
We were looking for a 16' Scamp
when we found and purchased our Casita
but I'm sure we would have been just as happy with a Scamp
. Now that we are used to the wider bed,the flat front door and the little extra room it has for the three of us it would be hard to go back to a 16' now. We average about 13.5 to 14 MPG so we do get jealous of Norm and Ginny being able to tow with a 4 cyl. and the great gas mileage they get. That alone makes a 16' Scamp
quite desirable with the price of gas climbing again!
