Gilda, I test drove a Forester and liked it a lot. However, I was concerned that the 200# tongue weight
would limit us too much. The RAV with the v6 has a 350# limit. We might want to have a bike rack welded to the hitch (we would remove a propane
tank if we did this), so we wanted extra tongue weight
Carol, I read about the RAV's rear sag issues. My tv and I will have something in common! ;-) If I find it to be a problem I will purchase a weight
distribution hitch, which RAV owners have had good success with. We could remove a propane
tank if necessary, but if we can keep it I would like to have a separate tank for outdoor cooking, since we will be doing most of our cooking outdoors. No more need to carry the little green tanks.
