Tow vehicle ??

Group : What is your "tow vehicle" & what are you towing with it ??

Just curious, since...we're the ultra-light folks !!

Cheers, P.

I tow my 1975 Trillium 1300 with a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Wagon,2.5L Turbo, Manual Transmission and it seems a pretty good fit. The only issue we did have was the rear springs would compress a bit too much so my husband stuck in a set of spring restrictors and we haven't had an problems since. Fun car to drive with or without the trailer in tow!

We have a 16' Scamp pulled by a '07 Nissian Xterra. I just got the Scamp in October and put about 1200 miles on it coming back from Backus, MN. Then we took a 3000 miles trip to California for Thanksgiving. Even towed it through 6" of snow. It towed real well.

Here we are in the Grande Cache Alberta area towing a 1300 boler with a 2004 Toyota Highlander with a V6. We have also used a 4X4 Dodge Dakota extended cab with a V8 and earlier a Safarri van with a V6. Never had a problem unless it's "How much extra can we cram into the tow"?
