2015 Flying Cloud 20 FB (Bambi): we pull with a 2013 F150 Supercab Lariet 4x4 with 3.5L Ecoboost and no W/D hitch. The Ford pulls like a dream! I pass semi's going uphill with cruise control on, and the engine is not even working hard.

Flying Cloud 20 Bambi towed originally with Lexus RX350 with V6 and factory tow package. Now towing with f150 Platinum Super Crew with 5.4 V8. Both use WHD and dual sway control. The Lexus was smoother tow but the truck carries more stuff.

FJ cruiser

Have been towing our 16' with a Toyota FJ Cruiser. For 3 years now. No problems. Have sway control but also toes fine without it. Added RockTamers since Bambi has no rock guards. Rock Tamers are great!
Only wish the FJ had a larger gas tank

Used to pull my 20ft FC with a Tahoe and Yukon, both with the 5.3L engine. Traded the '05 Yukon for a gently used 5-year old 3/4 ton Suburban with the 6L engine for towing....nice nice upgrade re stability and power. But use WD and anti-sway equipment as well. So far so good. Safe travels. jon

I have two tow vehicles - 2012 Dodge Journey RT and a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. Both with weight distribution hitches....and we had the factory receivers beefed up to move weight to the front axles. Both with 3.6 v6.

Tows very well.

I tow my 2015,19 International Serenity Bambi with a 2015, FWD, 3.0 liter, 4 cylinder EcoDiesel Ram 1500 Promaster Cargo van. I use a WD hitch without any anti-sway devices. Without the WD hitch the deminished front wheel traction would be dangerous.

We have a 19' Bambi and started out, two years, with a Toyota Highlander fitted with a Blue Ox hitch system. The TV was OK but a bit marginal in our Cascade mountain travel so the past two years we have had a Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCab with 6.5' bed, the 2.7 Ecoboost and the max tow package, and the "old" Blue Ox. It has been great ! 5,000 miles last year and 1,500 so far this year with complete satisfaction - plenty of power, reasonable MPG, superb handling, far more room for storage/hauling plus it is fun to drive. The only "liability" when compared to the Highlander is the longer wheelbase makes parking, especially backing up, a bit more difficult.
