What is the Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating (GCVWR) of the Rodeo?Wannabe said:Thanks for the info, much appreciated!
Compare these two for towing my 1700-2000lb boat:
Isuzu Rodeo 3.2L V6, 4sp auto
weighs 4163 lbs
RWD/4WD body on frame
RAV4 V6, 5sp auto
3500 lb rating
weighs about 3655
FWD/AWD Unibody construction
Looks like the RAV4 has the edge in power (hp and torque) at similar RPM
And one more gear to choose from. I imagine you could leave it in 4th gear all day long when towing. 3rd in Rodeo revs too high for highway speeds.
OPINIONS please, will the RAV4 equal or exceed the overall towing ability of the Rodeo?
My guestimates on trailer length are based on a conventional or RV type trailer. I don't know much about boats/trailers. They are typically more stable than an RV, so I would be inclined to think you could go longer without any ill effects.Wannabe said:My boat is 17' long and the whole trailer combo with boat and motor is about 23'
