The best is to look i your manual and your licence disk or rating plate sticker on car for the Tare, GCM, and then the GVM of the caravan.... my first thought would be that it should be able to

According to Toyota's website the FJ Cruiser is only allowed to tow up to 1500kg whilst the Elegance is 1850kg (according to Jurgens) .

the tare on the FJ is 1940kg and towing capacity is on Toyota website 1500kg so my guess is no! GVM on Elegance is 1850kg

It should be able to tow it without any problems, but,
Toyota always stay on the safe side by making the capabilities a lot less than they really are.
This protects them and their products.

Oh Puleez!  An FJ could probably comfortably tow double 1850kg.

I would just make sure of the rules regarding the licencing. Tare, GVM GCM etc. as previously advised.

Your strongest weapon is your mind!
And then there's, Power Tools!

Hehehehe
Moet net nie langs die pad geweeg word nie. N elegance bvm is for sure 2000 kilo plus.

Able to tow is one thing
Safe towing is something else.
Ek het n Jeep Cherokee gehad 1980 kg tare and it was not n plessure. With the Grand Cherokee 2200kg its a complete different scenario.

But try it. The Elegance is a fantastic caravan. I would not trade it for anything on the market as today.

Anyhow .. welcome on the forum.. enjoy.
I love camping all year round

Die FJ het die 4 liter motor in en sal beslis die job doen
Wat my bekommerd maak is dat jy op die gewigs grens is of dalk onder. Tweedens sit jy met n voertuig wat redelik hoog van die grond is. en n short wheel base bo op alles.

In my opinie is dit nie n veilige sleep. Vriend van my het sy Penta vir so twee of drie keer gesleep en sy FJ verkoop.

So as jy moet sleep wees net versigtig en sal sterk ook n stabeliser aanbeveel
Voorspoed
To all forum members. May you be surrounded by your precious family. May you have the warmest thoughts and best wishes for a wonderful holy Christmas and a New Year blessed with Gods grace. May peace, love, and prosperity follow you always in the name of Jesus our saviour.
