Please tell me towing is possible with the 4. Thanks!
What were you expecting? The V6 model is rated at 3500 lbs w. the proper twoing package.purduealum91 said:Jeez, that doesnt sound like much. I wonder how much a small, box type trailer weighs?
Depends on what you need to tow and how many different things you want to hang off of it. Trailer, large wheeled equipment (log splitter, concrete mixer, etc), bike/ski/storage racks, it's all up to you.purduealum91 said:Well, I did some research at UHaul.com. The trailer I would be towing, weighs 780 lb empty. I would be loading it witha stove (max 200# Im guessing). It should be ok.
Can anyone recommen Class 1 trailer hitches? Does it make sense to install a Class 2 even though the max towing capacity is 1,500#? Thanks!
Of the three aftermarket hitches currently available (Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese) -- based on their provided photos and illustrations (if they're correct) -- the Draw-Tite looks the "most" like an OEM application, with only the center portion of the wide crossbar sloping out to protrude beneath the bumper.jyounghans said:Is there any reason to believe that the fit of the aftermarket Hitches is any different. ? For example, the Toyota hitch (in pictures) seems to be very unobtrusive, while the Reese, Curt, other models seem to have more of the tubular framework showing? Anyone care to share some pictures or at least real world experience?
