Drove the FJ about 3000km round trip from near Edmonton, Alberta to Casper, Wyoming and back to pick up this beauty.
Those little trailers are all over Wyoming. There must have been a dealer around back in the day. I think there's nearly a dozen here. Must have been a good deal to drive that far for one eh?

Re: Post all trailer towing pics!!

My little Bantam BT3 trailer made the 3,000 mile trip form Cali to Alaska with all my possessions(not much) for my PCS to Eielson . I had my mountain bike mounted on top of it too but it was stolen the only night I stopped at a hotel in Eugene, Oregon...

The small fiberglass trailers are very popular these days (Scamps, Casitas, Olivers, Bigfoot, Escape). The one I bought is an Escape 15 ft with bathroom that was made in Chilliwack, BC. Although Escape is currently a very busy manufacturer of fiberglass trailers, this particular model is no longer made, and Escape now concentrates their "factory direct" sales (no dealers) on larger 17', 19', 21' and fifth wheel models. My understanding is that there were only about 125 or so 15B trailers made before production of the 15B was discontinued, so I do indeed have a rare trailer.

I pulled out this old airstream today like it was nothing. It had been sitting for ages and the wheels were in a hole. 4 low and it pretty much idled and pulled right out.

Hello chewey46 it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?

Re: Post all trailer towing pics!!

Towed with the FJ for the first time last week. Installed the hitch and wiring that day, so had to test it out. Trailer loaded weighs approx 4000 lbs. I'll post a pic if I can. It was a little sagging in the rear. Thinking I'm going to get inner spring air bags to remedy. It towed well, but going above 60 mph was a little sketchy, I'm guessing because of the tongue weight and short wheelbase?

2008 FJ Cruiser, Stock for now. Not a wheeler but will be.

This is what I routinely pull when camping. It's a Casita deluxe fiberglass camper. Pulls like it's not even there. I do have a 7 pin plug and trailer towing kit and trailer brakes and all that working. But really you forget it's even back there unless your going up a hill maybe.
