Towing Vehicle for Flagstaff 10′ Tent Trailer

-Trailer Dry Vehicle Weight = 1,493 lbs.

-Can be towed by most 6 cylinder cars, vans, and sport utility vehicles.

-Check with your car manufacturer for tow ratings of your vehicle. Tow ratings for compact cars (4 cylinder motor) are questionable.

 Trailer Hitches and Wiring

 -A wiring plug with a “flat four” plug or a “7-way round” plug wiring harness is required.

Standard Flat Four Plug (most cars & vans)
