+1,000,000 We tow our 17 foot Casita
with a 2010 F150 Lariat (supercab). Very comfortable! And realize the small trailers have very limited storage. We find our F150, with a ARE TW camper top, provides us ample space for everything.
I have towed with a variety of vehicles, some undersized capacity wise, some marginal, and some with extra. Its a lot easier going up AND down mountains and large climbs with extra to spare. One reason we ended up with the Casita
and not something bigger is I wanted to have something that my F150 could tow with ease.
We leave our SUV home when we are camping. The F150 is much more comfortable for us, and the dog too!
We are currently wrapping up our three week western USA trip.
If you want to learn about towing capacity of vehicles, google PAYLOAD capacity. Many tow vehicles, including my F150 run out of payload capacity long before they run out of "towing" capacity. Some ignore such limits, you decide.
If you are looking for a used trailer in NC, you are not going to find an Escape
or an Oliver
either. You are most likely going to see Scamp
, and those tend to sell fast too, really fast.
