I was very pleased with the way she handled. Up to 65 mph, no sway at all. Over that and it got a little unhappy. (Had to test her limits... cautiously, of course.) Sway kit will remedy that. Folks who tow with Windstars say they perform wonderfully -- better than SUVs. Less rigid suspension. Less sway. Had a little trouble climbing some of the long grades, but nothing over 3500 rpms. I just backed off on the accelerator and let her climb at comfortable speeds of 59 to 63 mph. On the flats and downgrades she wanted to go faster. Would have pulled the Scamp
at 75 if she had her way. The sway factor over 65, as I said, limited that.
The brake controller was nice, but I think the brakes
stopped working after awhile. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. Hard to be sure. Certainly had no trouble stopping, both fast and slow. Dad and I are gonna check it out to be sure. I didn't pay $120 on a controller just to have it sit pretty under my steering wheel.
Gas mileage was noticably
reduced pulling a trailer. Don't have the figures yet, but it certainly sucked it down. More than I'd anticipated. Oh well. That's trailering.
So, North Central Vermont to Plainville, Mass and back in 10 hours (includes rest stops and 1-1/2 hour to finish wiring the tow vehicle to match the trailer) and 550 miles. Not bad. Pictures coming soon.
