Rav4 V6 Awd, Towing Question
Posted May 29 2012 - 11:49 AM
OEM hitch good for 3500 lb
Could I safely haul a 19 foot glass boat?
I'd plan on equipping the trailer w/ brakes.
My guess is a 19' glass boat w/ 200 horse motor / trailer / fuel will weigh somewhere in neighborhood of 3000 to 3500 lb.

The vehicle might tow it, but the real question is, trailer brakes or no, will it stop it when someone jacks up in front of you? It looks like either rig is at, or over max load for the Toyota. You have nothing left in reserve for safety.

Since I made this post I looked around on a boat forum and found dry weight of a 2005 Ranger 519 w/ 200 Opti to be more than 3500.
Truth is, I think I need a body on frame truck.
The crossover SUV isn't gonna cut it.
