Vehicle ground clearance, vehicle height, frame / unibody, weight, wheelbase, suspension, hitch type and how hitch is attached, brake module, cooling systems; Trailer weight, (height, width, shape) air pushed at speed, ground clearance, brakes, suspension type, shocks, trailere balance and tires, all effect towing.

Good to hear from you Ed!

No problems with the Ranger. Just really needed a four-door/four passenger vehicle and the deal for the Jeep worked out perfectly. Neighbor had the Jeep, neighbor's brother wanted the Ranger, so we did a three-way sale. It was easy and fast and everyone's been super happy since then (end of July).

Mini-me is great -- 21 months now so runs the household. Next scamp project is to add a bunk bed over the porta-potty so the side dinette doesn't need to be converted to a bed at night for a few more years. We really like having a dinette first thing in the morning -- regardless of who is or isn't up yet -- or being able to take a catnap on the rear dinette that always stays a bed.

Like the "basement", but might have to lose it -- need a good way to haul bicycles and a hitch on the back of the Scamp might be our best answer.
