  1. Rails, Roof Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Anyone have experience with towing vintage campers long distances? How should I prepare my 2003 Honda CRV? What’s the average gas mileage while towing? I understand not to exceed the 1500lbs tow capacity. Any tips? Advice? Etc?

    New to the forum. Hope I have the right thread. I have a 2002 CR-V. I just bought a small popup camper. It weights 1330 lbs. Will my CR-V be able to tow it ok ???? Mine came with a hitch, so a previous owner towed something with it. Thank you for your help.

    Hi I would like advice on a camper that can provide the most bang for my buck, provide electric, cooking, sleeping, maybe solar energy and be lightweight. I will be carrying kayak and bike too. Sorry if I sound like a dreamer and it doesn't exist. I want to drive cross country.

    My fiance and I have been working on converting my CRV into a camper. First I removed the backseats. In the process, I removed the hinted metal plates as well, and the seatbelts. I ended up cutting the seatbelts off rather than removing the molding to take them out, so the fabric has retracted...

We want to buy a Fleetwood Cobalt pop up camper since it is one of the lightest pop ups you can get and under the max. towing weight of 1500 lbs.

    Hi Everybody :) I know that in some models, especially series 1 before 2001, front seats can actually be folded down flat to make a quite a good size bed. It is slightly slanted but still comfortable. Can you help me trace which models in Great Britain had this spec?

    My wife and I drive a 2001 CRV with 5 speed mt and are considering buying a small camper. I'm looking at installing a class III hitch rated at 3500 towing and 350 tongue weight. I've read a lot of differing opinions about towing capacities of CRVs, but most of those pertain to 2004 or newer...

    I have been told by several camper dealers that I should have no trouble pulling a small 5 wide teardrop trailer with my 2011 4 cyl Honda CRV. I tend to think they are dealers and will say "no problem" at the drop of a hat just to get me to buy. I do not have a trailer hitch and will have a...

    Hello! First time on the forums. I'm trying to plan an extended road trip in my 2000 CR-V. One of my main goals is to install a storage system/bed in the back so I can use it instead of my tent to live out of. I found a great custom install here: however it doesn't quite...

    DSC04886.JPG - Pic link if nothing shows up here I didnt have much choice but to tow our normally non-travelling pop up, but I had work to do on it which I could not do up north. Dry weight is 1600, and I had no idea what it might be with all the tanks empty and with the current options like...

    I just bought a used Sunline 15 foot travel trailer (Dry weight 1830lbs). I plan on towing it with my '04 cr-v. I am gonna install the 2" hitch & will have towing stabilizer's on the camper. My question is : Has anyone ever had electric brake controllers installed on their "V" ?

    We just purchased a new 2007 EX AWD. It's mostly the womans car but I think it's great(not much stuff can fit in my SI). Anyway we are into camping and are looking to get a small pop-up camper. Tents just aren't cutting it for rainy days anymore. I looked at a few that weight around...
