Has anyone towed a 16' fiberglass trailer with a Jeep Cherokee 4.0 with 5 speed.
We are thinking of downsizing our tow from the 2wd suburban. We also are planing on towing to Utah in mid October and camping in the national parks and 4wd might come in handy.
thank you Jim H
Jim, I bought an 03 16' Scamp
DLX just before Christmas in Northern California.
From Arcata I drove to Fernley Nevada and then home in Central California. A trip of about 1700 miles.
About 1/3 of the driving was in the Mountains.
I took Highway 80 over Donner Summit and my 07 2.7 L 4 Cyl. Toyota Tacoma with 4 speed automatic transmission never dropped below 55 mph and 3rd gear in the Mountains unless I wanted to go slower.
It had a full propane
bottle, an extra group 27 battery
and no water in the water tank.
You should have no problems.
In case anyone is interested I averaged 20.6 M.P.G.. About 1100 miles was towing the trailer.
I love Toyotas!
