Jeff & Bev,
When we got our Scamp13, our best tow vehicle was a 2011 Honda CRV that Honda only rated for 1500 lbs tow weight
(we did add a transmission cooler)
We did not order a top-mounted AC unit, a furnace
, an awning
, or a front bathroom (requiring bath fixtures, black water tank, hot water heater, etc.)
We did order the refrigerator
, an electric demand-pump for the sink fresh water, extra lights
, extra 110v/12v power outlets, a Fantastic Fan, all of the overhead cabinets we could get (for clothes), a gray water tank (for national park restrictions), the screen door, a backsplash, and a porta-potty.
With the minimal weight
configuration, the Honda CRV was "adequate". We later bought a 2014 Ford Escape
2.0L Ecoboost FWD that we have hoped could tow the next larger size trailer.
We've had the 13 foot Scamp for almost 3 years and have had few regrets about our choice of options.
As always, YMMV! ��
Hope that helps some.
Good luck with your search and decisions! ��
