Hello Airsteamers! My wife & I are looking to buy our first trailer & we are thinking of getting a newer model 16' or 19' Bambi. We have no human kids, just one large Rottweiler & would prefer a 19 footer for the extra space. But, I am not sure how our vehicle will tow it. We have a 2002 Toyota 4runner V6 4WD which has a maximum gross trailer weight rating of 5,000lbs.
How would our 4runner do pulling a 19 foot trailer with a GVWR of 4,500lbs? Will it be a total dog going up hills, etc...? Are we better off getting the 16 footer (GVWR 3,500lbs)? In the future, I plan on getting a truck that will pull better.
Your experienced advice is greatly appreciated! Hope to see you on the road real soon!
