Hi--we have just returned from living in our 23.5' Lazy Daze Class C for almost 3 years and have recently decided to sell it and get a 13' fiberglass trailer as we need to make a trip to Boston this summer. We live in Anacortes, WA and hopefully we can find a trailer in the NW Washington area.
Also would like to ask what do most people use to tow their small fiberglass trailers? Can a 4 cylinder vehicle do the job? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Barb

Tow Vehicles.

Most of the 13 footers will be over 1500lbs loaded so finding a 4 cylinder that will pull this is difficult. The toyota/nissan 4 cylinder engines in their small trucks will do it as will the Subaru Forester/Outback/Legacy's. The trucks don't require trailer brakes but the soob's do. We pull our trailer fine with our 2.4cyl Toyota.

The small 4cyl SUV's (Elements/Rav4's/CRV's) are not rated to pull enough for the 13' footers though some members have done so. There are many threads on this forum about TV's but realistically you should never exceed what the car manual says for liability reasons.

Saying this, some of the new 6 cylinder SUV's like the RAV4's get excellent gas mileage so don't restrict yourself to just 4 cylinders. Sometimes a big engine in small car will get better mileage because it doesn't have to work hard.
