Well, the subject says it all... ;-)
Just wanna ask you guys what u think....
Got a 2001 Focus SE wagon.... and maybe this summer i'll rent a
camper... small one... like 8ft box.... says 1175 lbs.... anyone
experience it? can i get some problems with the weight of the camper??
In alt.autos.ford.focus the email@example.com:
1175 lbs == 532.9 kg
Doesn't sound that much. My registration says 620 kg (1366.86
lbs) trailer without breaks, with breaks 1200 kg (2645.54 lbs).
Depends (iirc) on the engine and alike, haven't trailered much,
just motorbikes, but you didn't really mentioned the trailer at
all (with breaks).
There was a thread about towing back a while ago. You can read it
I still have no experience towing with my 2001 SE Wagon. The Olds is
doing the job.
If you do, let us know. By chance, are you pulling a Palomino? By
memory, that's the weight of my camper.
My problem is that i only have one car!! lol
so i'll have to ask those Ford rep what they think about that....
and for now, don't know what kind i'll be pulling.... just trying to
figure out if i'm able to do it... since my wife really want
to buy a pop-up.... hehe!
As others have said, Ford recommends towing no more than 1000 lbs. (454 kg.)
with a U.S. Focus. Body style, horsepower, and transmission type don't affect
