Can anyone tell me if you have had first-hand experience pulling a 17 foot Casita
Freedom Deluxe with a 2000 4WD Toyota Tacoma? It is a four-cylinder 2-7 engine with an extended cab. It's all set with the brake controller and wired for a trailer.
I'm writing on behalf of a friend. My biggest concern is his steep and potentially dangerous hill that my friend has for an access road that has a 900 foot drop off on one side. He also lives in a remote area and there are many passes to go over with hills to climb on a very regular basis. I know other Toyota Tacoma's have pulled this rig but I'm not sure how new the trucks were or how many hills they had to climb.
The deep concern started when I got an email from a seller who had just a 13 foot scamp
with the bathroom and her Subaru Forrester could only go 40 miles an hour uphill, and she feared overheating the rig on a trip so she is selling it. Thank you in advance for any helpful feedback.
He was preparing to go pick up a very special Casita
Freedom Deluxe trailer when this tremendous red light
appeared. He always had doubts that it might be too heavy for his rig but this email brought up the conversation again.
And for you Scamp
experts out there I would like to pose the same question on a 2007 16 foot scamp
without a bathroom? Would his truck pull that up hills with no problem or does he need to concentrate on a 13 foot scamp with no bathroom?
Thanks again so much for any feedback you could send my way. The sooner the better as he is trying to find a trailer very soon.
And if anyone has a great lead on a Scamp 13 without a bathroom that is in wonderful shape with the furnace
and a three-way fridge
please holler soon! The problem continues to be that they're already sold
by the time one gets a hold of the seller.
