the ford needed nothing for towing I lucked out there we have driven the edge about 15k pulling the scamp so far. the edge has paddle shifting and I don't use o/d to pull.

I don't understand how some manufacturers rig their cars up with turn signals and such.

good luck

I have always towed my campers by their tire speed rating. I have had too many blowouts from “made in China” trailer tires. When I towed with my Tacoma, I always had two spares. I don’t know where the Scamp tires are made, but they went from a load range “C” to a “D”.

our scamper does not have brakes I see no need for them but others feel different that is fine!

Toyota says the brakes for my Rav4 are mandatory. The Scamp salesman recommended I put them on for safety. They are a cheap option $275.

Welcome Bill! My recommendation is a Prodigy I or 2. I have installed over 50 easily. Every customer loves them! Costs a little more but worth it! Set them up once and done!

I hope it turns out that way. I wish I didn’t have that cpap device. Would love to go solar. But in today’s world of camping, you have to worry about theft. Something I never had to worry about before. Times are changing.

How do you like your 2.7 EB?

Congrats on your new Scamp Bill and welcome to the fold. Are you coming in on 94 or 90? Say hello to Micah at the plant. I just purchased a different TV. 2012 Jeep GC , it took the dealer four hours to install brake control and 7 pin. Hope your summer go fast as I am sure your anxious!

I got an official OK from a Toyota rep visiting our local dealer. I would never try it with a 16’. The Scamp will be well below the 3500lbs.

I got the 2012 Rav4 V6 Tow pkg. I tow my 16' just fine. with most options, bath ,air, furnace, HWH. Should be fine if it is anywhere near as good as the older models are. Good luck, Carl

Key point Carl, V6 vs I4. Toyota doesn’t seem to want to bring back the V6
I hear the 2019 redesign will be made up like the new Camry. If in the future we upgrade to the 16’, I will use another TV. Your 2012 is the last year of the good ones that could do more.

Thanks John, but this summer is going to go very slow. Congrats on the new Jeep!

The F-150 with the 2.7 is amazing! Can’t say enough good about it! Pulls the 25FB and truck full of stuff. I would like a little more power and may look at an F-250/350 but the problem is I love this truck so much!

I have a 2001 F150 Supercrew 4x4 with a V8 and wanted to trade it in on a F150 3.5 EB, but $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ stopped me. EBs costs more than the V8!
