View Full Version : trailer towing

04-08-2011, 01:37 PM
The 2011 Forester shows a 2000 lb maximum tow rating.
My trailer is within this at 1650 lb.and has trailer brakes
What are owners experiences with towing?
Is there sufficient pulling and braking capacity?
Are there any recommendations by towing members?
Is there any evidence of excessive wear due to towing?
Thanks for your help.

I have never towed with the Forester but the specifications show a maximum towing capacity of 2,400 lbs with trailer brakes. At 1,650 lbs and trailer brakes, you are within the Forester's capabilities. Follow the instructions on section 8-18 in the owner's manual.
