Towed the snowmobile with the Rav4 today, what fun!

It is fun to drive the Rav in the snow. Even more fun when I put the snowmobile on the trailer and tow it to the trailhead, here are some pics;




The trail, all to myself;

Purty. We need more snow, only a few inches on the ground.

I would think that would pull very easily; I have pulled a similar trailer with 2 ATVs on it.

I can't imagine that the single sled and trailer weigh 1,000 lbs. The Rav tows it very easily, slows and stops it good too. V6 with 70,000 miles.

This boat/trailer goes all of 3,500lbs and the Rav4 did pretty good with it;




This utility trailer, loaded up with appliances was not much of a challenge though;





The little Rav4 can pull all of its rated 3,500 lbs with ease. Go V6!
