Towing with a 2014 Forester
I have a boat that I'm guessing is about 2500 lbs (1650lb boat & single axle trailer). I keep it docked all summer - just need to tow it about one half mile to to the launch once in spring and back again in the fall. I would not need to exceed 30 mph, but there is a short steep hill at the launch site.
Any opinions if my 14 Forester could do it?
What's the likely damage for exceeding the towing capacity: transmission? suspension? frame?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
