Does anyone know about the capabilities of the new Toyota Avanza? I have just ordered one and was wondering if anyone has towed any type of trailer or caravan with it. I have got a Gypsey Caravette 2, which I use to tow with a Ford Bantam 1.3XL and it coped well with the van. Please let me know.

The Gross combination mass is 1000kg greater than the Tare mass. Manufacturers spec is max towing cap 500kg without overrun brakes. If you take four people add a tank of fuel and then add a trailer behind you are within legal spec by about 100kg's. A work mate of mine tows a town & country trailer fully loaded with 4 adults in the vehicle on a regular trip. From the horses mouth, if you are happy to take your time its fine, but dont expect a ball of fire as the fire went out last night and now the coffee's cold.
