A V6 should have no problem towing an A-frame. HERE are some specs for Flagstaff A-frames.Hello,
I want to buy an A-Frame pop up and I know my minivan can only pull 3600, so I'm shopping for a truck. The truck I like is a mid-range V6 and can pull 7000-would this be enough towing power to haul an A-Frame? Thanks!
Wow!!! Towing w/A Subaru!!!My aframe weighs 1628 pounds dry with a max weight of 2500. I do t think you need a truck, although they are handy to have around. If you need to justify it to your wife, sure, gotta have a truck to tow. Your secret is safe with me.
We put a hitch on our Subaru to tow our Aliner.
It's like you read my mind-I'm torn b/w the A-Liner and a Hybrid! My friends just got a hybrid and I love it! But they are not able to tow it safely w/the family suv-say issues so I am going to do my homework before I commit.I agree if all your planning to tow is the a liner or other popup than you don't really need a big truck to tow it. Now if you think you will eventually go to a hybrid than yes. I have a v6 4Runner that tows 5000. I tow a 3500 GVWR popup and have no problems except on the very steep portions in the mountains and then my tow vehicale only slows up and can't keep speed. It does turn my AC off so that it could use that power to where it needs it. With that said I wouldn't want to tow much more than this with my vehical if I continue to camp in the mountains. The mountains really gave my car a workout, but she did it, and once at the top we were back at speed. On flat ground and small hill I can feel it but the car has more than enough power. It all depends on what camper you are looking at. If you go for the lighter A frames you can get away with less vehical. Look at where you like to camp. Do you have mountain you will be crossing? will you be boondocking with the camper? Those would be situations where you will need more power than what a smaller vehical can provide.
