Hey Cheech! I too am in the land of the rig rocket trucks and monster 5th wheels (St. Albert) and had some questions about your Impreza. What year was it, and did it have a CVT?
The reason I ask is that before acquiring my Boler
, I purchased the smallest vehicle that I could find that I though could handle the load, which ended up being the 2016 CVT Crosstrek (basically just a jacked up Impreza). I'm of the less-is-more school of thought. I haven't put a tow kit on the car yet as I finally just this week found a Boler
in good enough shape to buy. I assumed it'd handle the Boler
easily until I read your post. Car is rated for 1500lbs here, but the same car in Australia is rated for 3000 and I wasn't worried about being over 1500 by a bit.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I do have a 2000 Explorer that I could use as a tow vehicle, but it's getting pretty long in the tooth, and I don't trust it for long trips in the mountains.
