We take delivery of the 2012 Bounder 35K tomorrow. It's rated for the normal 5000# max tow weight and a max tounge weight of 500#.
We have a 4 cylinder front wheel drive 2007 Toyota Highlander:
Length 184.6" / 15.38'
Curb weight 3516#
** I'm confused about the curb weight though. The specs show 3516# but the GVWR of 5360# minus the 1159# vehicle capacity would make the car weigh 4201#.
For my question lets assume the curb weight is correct.
We would like to get a tandem tow dolly so we could also bring our golf cart (approx 900 to 1000#).
That brings the total towed weight to 5466# if the dolly weighs 950#.
The 466# over the 5K max doesn't concern me as much as the possible excess tongue weight.
Does anyone have info concerning their tongue weight so I can get a decent estimate for the tongue weight I would have?
My instinct say it'll be way over the 500# max tongue but the wife tends to prefer the word of total strangers over mine.
