It drives really smooth - I took it to the mountains and stayed in 4th most of the way.

The only thing you need to do is get an aftermarket brake control. The FJ is not setup for trailer braking. I have not added it yet and still no problems.

It's a 1967 Airstream Safari 22'. This is pre-restoration. We are taking it out this weekend and Tuesday it goes in for a complete restoration.

That is WWAAAAAY COOL!! :cool: :cool:

How cool would it be if you had a SILVER FJC and had one of those to tow around?! Swweeeet!!

I am going to have to go research how much cake it takes to get me one of those! I am sure I am going to have heart failure.:p

The Voodoo Blue goes very well with the Air Stream. Let us know of an after-market trailer brake set up for the FJ. Was disappointed that toyota didn't have the FJ pre installed with electeric brakes. Grrrreat pic. Love that Voodoo blue.

Here is a reply from Airstream Tech in reponce to towing the 19' Bambi with a FJC:

I’m showing the GVWR of the 19’ is 4500# which sounds like your OK. The hitch weight without options or variable weight on the International shows 510# and on the Safari at 480# which sounds like it’s marginal. I believe this is a question Toyota will have to answer. We recommend 15% above what is needed.

Here's a photo of the [email protected]:



[email protected]: Welcome!

Might be a better camper for towing with the FJ at under 2K lbs., especially if you have a Sun Fusion to go with it. They also have a silver for you TitS guys. No luck for us Voodoos or the Blacks or Bordeauxs:(
