Re: 17 Footer Hitch Height
I'm towing a 17B with a RAV 4 with V6 and it handles the job easily. I bought the RAV because my Explorer had a 350 lb. rating on the bumper hitch and Tammy and Reace wanted 550 at least ( as I recall). I didn't want to spend money installing a new hitch on a 94 Explorer, so I got the RAV and a class III equalizer.
So, partly it depends on the tongue rating for your hitch, but you might also find the ride better with an equalizer. I've towed a short distance without using it and it's a bouncy ride, but then it's only a RAV.
