    Question Towing with a Daihatsu Terios 4x4

    Hi guys

    Can anyone help please. What is the best caravan to tow with a Daihatsu Terios 4x4 (1.5L)?

    I have been looking at the old caravette 4. But is there any other caravan out there that is light weight and will also tow quite easily by a Terios? I know I'm asking for a miracle, but hey, it's a try.8)

    Thanx

    Hi. I tow a quad and trailer (less than 500kg) and in my opinion the Terios is too light to tow anything heavier. Definately going to be underpowered as well. Does 120km/h with trailer but just does not feel safe. My opinion.

    I only have a hitch on a Fiat Uno Mia standing here, sadly its only thing that can get my dirtbike to the places I ride.

    The trailer is a 3 bike, big with the axels sticking out about 20cm past the uno on both sides. Its very stable but very heavy. If I load the bike, the car will cruise 100kph easily. 120km/h and it feels like its in pain. Down a mineshaft with a huge tailwind 135kph.

    My point, your car just does not have suffiecent torque. It will pull a caravan, not very fast and you will more then likely have to drive the crap out of it in 3rd gear getting up any mountain pass.

    What about an offroad trailer with a rooftop tent?
