If I need to change vehicles and also want I take my canoe
What do you recommend?
Dave's advice to take the VIN
to Ford is good. I will add that for a 16' Scamp
, you will want a vehicle with a tow rating of 3500 pounds or higher. That's a pretty common rating for any number of mid-sized SUVs. I'm pretty sure even a Ford Escape
or a Ford Edge can tow that much with the right engine and equipment, as well as similar offerings from other manufacturers.
An SUV with a roof rack will allow you to take the canoe. A shorter vehicle might be easier to load.
So sorry to hear about your husband. I'm glad you won't be giving up travel. My father passed away over 30 years ago. My mother, now 90, still travels in a class B motorhome.
