    I had a Casita 17ft and towed it with a Honda Passport and I had no problems! You will hardly know its behind you with the TACO.

    The Tacoma...2011...V-6...Auto...rear spring tsb, factory tow package, and Firestone airbags.

    The trailer...2012 Casita 17SD.

    The Tacoma does a fine job. I tow in the mountains almost constantly and there's no lack of power. I have the factory sway bar but no wdh. Handles great in cross winds.

    Measurement from top of receiver to ground for Taco V6 AT5 4x4, and measurement from underside of Casita coupler to ground.

    Can y'all help us out with this one?

    these look like the ones available for rent on base down here. there are a few guys in the Oklahoma thread who have rented it and had no problems towing. One was a first gen owner and the other a 2nd gen.

    If I remember right the distance from the top of the 2" ball to the ground should be 21 inches.

    Casita has a website that answers a lot of questions. If you phone them they'll answer any questions you have. Nice people.
