How much payload you're comfortable towing?
« on: January 28, 2018, 08:03:35 AM »
I was wondering if I can tow one of these  https://http2.mlstatic.com/casa-rodante-350-deluxe-full-leandro-D_NQ_NP_859301-MLA20319963601_062015-F.jpg for a long trip (lets say 5000km) including uphills and downhills (brakes wise).

Do you think the 5th gear is strong enought?

I would think the suspension and brakes would be fine...5th I would not bet on...should be ok on the flats.

On one of our yearly fishing trips, going uphill with DW and two teenagers left me with only 2nd and 3rd gear usable.  We were at about 9,500 feet elevation.
