Towing 2008 19' Bambi with 2008 Toyota Highlander
After reading through the thread on the towing a 16' Bambi with a Honda Pilot, I was curious what folks thought about a possible set up.
My wife and I will be taking delivery of a 2008 19' Bambi International CCD and are hoping to tow it with our new 2008 Toyota Highlander (w/ 5000 # towing capacity and towing package). We previously thought about towing with our Highlander Hybrid, but have decided against it given the 3500# tow capacity and complexity of any hybrid issues along the way.
With base weight of the Int'l CCD of approx 3575# plus about 200# of options. Loaded, with a medium levels of water and lp, we're looking t approx 4300#, 200# less than the GVWR of the axle of the AS.
We're planning on using an Equilizer hitch on the AS and a new Drawtight, Valley, or similar for the TV Highlander.
TV occupants will be my wife and I and 15# dog (total about 350#).
Thoughts, suggestions, etc?
No plans to run the mountains, mostly flatlands, and coast.
