We currently own a 2013 Range Rover Evoque (RR), and have been eyeing a 16' Bambi Sport (AS). (We are likely selling our 1963
27' project AS, so if you need or would like to buy a part from it, let me know...). I have read a few of the threads on the forum regarding light SUV TV's and the Range Rover brand in general as a TV make, and understand to the majority of the forum population, that equals two strikes already. I am posting what our RR owner manual specs read, and the AS Bambi brochure specs as they are shown, to get your opinion, as the trailer would be a huge investment. We want to make sure we have a safe TV to get to the wilderness.
Vehicle weight: 3,615#
Gross vehicle weight: 5,180#
Gross train weight: 8,680#
Max payload: 1,100#
Maximum permissible towing weight: 3,500#
Maximum permissible tounge weight: 330#
Track Front: 63.9"
Track Rear: 64.2"
Vehicle Length: 171.5"
Base Weight: 2,860#
Hitch Weight: 350#
Exterior Width: 8'
The Evoque is AWD, and has been equipped with a Class II towing package. The salesman at the RV dealer was very kind and had some suggestions for the TV to get it tow ready for a trailer of Bambi's stature:
2" receiver hitch
Brake Controller (I think the TV is already equipped with this in its computer, and is called Trailer Stability Assist)
Any suggestions or helpful criticism would be much appreciated! If you know of a specific thread which tackles this exact topic, please direct me there! We love our Evoque, and think it would look even better with a brand new AS being towed behind her. On her side or roof, in the middle of the interstate however.... not so much. Safety first.
