Escape 19 & Toyota FJ Cruiser

Anyone have any actual experience towing a 19 with a Toyota FJ Cruiser?

Thanks and that was very helpful. Looks like the FJ wouldn't have a problem with a 19.

I am a fan of red vehicles. Probably the last 10 have been red.

That is Mt Robson, highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

And you are very fortunate to get a picture of Robson without the cloud cap that hangs around it 90% of the time.

It is less than an hour drive west of Jasper, well worth the drive.

How can anyone look at a photo like that and not want to go see it in person? Alas, here I am stuck in North Carolina for work...

Now there's an idea. Only 400 miles north, could be there that Sunday night!

I guess if you are in Calgary or Edmonton, you can go to Banff and Jasper all the time.
