Hello, everyone! John and I just joined this group. Thanks for accepting our request! We are excited to learn from others.
We are on our way to buy a 2013 Retro 155. We rented a U-haul to pick it up while we are having towing brake system installed on our 2010 Highlander hybrid. The trailer has a dry weight of 1,840. We are especially interested in this brand due to the low weight and it being more affordable than some of the fiberglass trailers.
We would love to hear from others if they think the Highlander hybrid will be safe to tow this trailer over mountain passes and longer trips. We do not have a factory installed tow package - it came with 5k U-haul hitch. We got the electrical updated and we are adding the brake package.
Also, has anyone used the Curt Echo Mobile Brake Control?
Do people tow without sway bars with their small 150 - 155 models?
Any hybrid towing feedback is appreciated.
We are super excited for many a new journey in our new little trailer.
Kristi and John
