    actual towing capacity.

    i have been watching a bunch of youtube videos lately and it has been fun to let my mind wander and think about hitching up a small camper to my 2019 Crosstrek 6sp manual.

    of course i would want a bathroom/shower in it , if possble was just wondering if anyone has towed an A frame or scamp like trailer with a crosstrek. i think it says it has a 1500 lb towing capacity.


    thanks.

    You can tow anything as long as you don't exceed the 1,500 pound limit. If I remember correctly the tongue weight limit is about 165 lbs.

    Tongue weight on the US 2018 Limited is listed at 200 lbs.

    Remember that's 1,500 pounds in North America. Other areas around the world may list a different limit as they did in the previous model year - ie other countries had a limit of several 100 pounds more.

    Why would they list a different limit for what is essentially the same car but in a different country? We never got to a verifiable answer.

    687kg + 90kg tongue weight.

    That's a whooping 63.5 grams less load and 0.0025328598 tonnes less tongue weight than you US folk.

    Lol; yup.. one of them days....
