17' Escape

We have a RAV4 V6 and are interested in getting a 17' trailer plan B and we are worried about the weight. Does anyone have experience pulling this size of trailer?

Re: 17' Escape

I travel single, and have pulled one for about 20K miles so far. 2010 RAV4 Sport (V6 & tow package). 24MPG highway, 22MPG around town & 15MPG towing, mostly on secondary roads. Mine weighs just under 3000 lbs loaded. You definitely know it is back there, but I like the combination. Only dislikes - I'd like a place to carry a generator (although I have done OK without one so far) and I hated the run flat tires that come on the 2010 Sport model. My blog of my 111 day trip is linked below.

Type RAV4 in the Search box just under the Amazon.com logo and you will see all previous references to RAV and towing.
