We were interested in scaling up to a 16' Deluxe (Model A) from our current 13' model (we're realizing the need for additional space / bathroom). We currently have a Toyota Venza V6 with tow package with a 3500 lb towing capacity / 350 lb tongue weight. It tows the 13' very well.
The V6 Venza has the same engine as the Toyota Sienna, and I've read from other forum members that they've successfully towed 16's without issue. That said, I've looked at 'trailer weights in the real world', and see that we are looking at a borderline situation for a Scamp Deluxe (say 2600-2800 lbs unloaded).
With clothes, food, gear, etc. for 2 adults and 2 kids, we're edging up there. What are your experiences / opinions on this. Should we change our TV to something more robust, like a 5000 lb towing capacity?
Thanks for your thoughts.
