Tacoma 2003 and 19 foot Escape: good combo?
We have a 19 footer on order, delivery in May (upgrading from a Fleetwood Bayside pop up- which at 3700 lbs is a heavy unit).
Our tow vehicle will be a 2003 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab, Prerunner TRD. It has the stiffer suspension (TRD) and the tow package (harnas, 7 pin connector, Prodigy brake controller, transmission cooler, heavy duty fan clutch), all rated for 5000 lbs towing capacity.
So, here are my questions:
Will I be OK pulling the Escape 19?
Do you think I need a weight distribution hitch, or will a sway bar do?
Anything else I should take into consideration with this rig combo?
Please chime in. Tnx!
