Hi Johno I see your tow wagon is a X-Trail. I need to replace my current vehicle and wondered how yours handles the Farr. What size motor and what tow capacity ?

John last visited us in November 2015, so you probably won't get a reply, John replied here! but I can tell you that Inma has an X-Trail and an RL24 which we think is around 1300kg. Most, but not all, X-Trail variants are rated to tow 2000kg.

I use an Xtrail to tow my 23 foot NIS. The weight of boat and trailer is claimed to be 1500kg. I need to confirm this with a weighbridge.

I haven't towed it far at all, only a few times and short distances, but it does seem to cope OK. I wouldn't want to pull anything much bigger, and would really like the boat to be smaller (or the car bigger!) But it does it ok without labouring too much as long as you keep the speed down and use a lower gear than normal. Seems to have the power and braking to handle this weight OK. The xtrail pulled it up the ramp with no issues so far.

I would really love a low ratio option for manuvering the trailer around as it is pretty hard on the clutch without this.

Mine is a 2002 2.5 ltr 4 cylinder Petrel with a 5 speed manual transmission and a 2000kg towball capacity.
