for two + years We have been towing our 2019 Scamp 13 with bath mostly with our 2018 Crossterk 152 Hp Manual trans that was barely enough, to my 94 Ford F250 turbo diesel and way too much . So we picked up a new 2021 Outback Onyx XT with the 2.4 turbo.260HP I have almost finished the wiring and Redarc brake controller and Curt hitch. and expect it to pull well. rated at 3.500 tow capacity Should be a no brainer. We are now considering putting a deposit on a 2022-23 16 foot Layout 6 . At 3.500 lb TV Is there anything I am missing that the Outback will be under sized? I realize that HP is only part of the towing puzzle. The Fake 8 speed trans is much heavier duty and tires and deferential and running gear is much larger than my Crosstrek. I will replace the small factory trans cooler with a much larger capacity one for safety.
