Re: Towing Samurai w/ Dodge Durango
Not a problem. I tow with my Trooper all the time, but it has 4 wheel disc brakes, not sure about a Durango. The Zuk tows like a dream, and stopping is like nothing, I hardly know it's there.
Last weekend I towed mxnhid's Audi (one of them anyway) about 45 miles north of him, borrowed a friends double axle trailer, and I don't have a brake controller. It still towed like a dream. Stopping took a little longer, but some moron pulled out in front of me anyway and it still stopped OK.
That afternoon I towed a Zuk back to my house, about 2 hours on the same trailer, and it wasn't a problem. They're light and the trailer was top of the line. It's amamzing how nice a good trailer is, kinda like a decent welder.
That night I towed one of my Scouts a few miles back to my house, and they weigh 4,000 lbs, never mind the trailer. It still stopped fine, but I wouldn't want to tow that much weight very far.
The Durango won't have the slightest problem. When towing my Zuk, I can't see it in the outside mirrors, so it's hard to keep an eye on it. Just something to look for.
