1990 toyota winnebago towing capacity joanne 9-1-04  
I have a 1990 toyota winnebago....It's a v6. Does anyone know it's towing capacity? I'm trying to pull a compact car.

I had an 89 Toyota Odyssey. From what I've heard on the Yahoo Toyota Motorhome discussion group, Toyota's are not suited to pull anything at all. They deliver superb fuel economy with a small engine and a modest frame, but are maxxed out as to what they carry already. Beware. You could snap an axel, bend a frame or smoke a transmission by trying.

I am interested in the same question. Have you learned anything.

Hi I had a 1990 toyota Winnebago and i had UHaul install a hitch which i used to haul a lite weight 3 bike motorcycle trailer which was fine although the other message is probably correct i felt i could get away with towing what i had in mind and it worked fine with out structual damage but if you look under your motorhome you will see the frame has already been extended a few feet and it looks pretty fragile at that. good luck

My brother is a licensed mechanic and when I had the odessey v6 with power boost he told me not to pull anything with it even though it is dually. They are not suited to towing. He's never owned anything but a Toyota so he knows a lot about them

I would like to purchase a 20-22' 1988-1992 toyota motorhome, but my wife feels they are top heavy and possibly will roll over in a strong cross wind or emergency maneuver (such as a quick lane change). Being an engineer, I doubt seriously this could happen except for the most extreme and right set of circumstances. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this type of occurrence? If I had an idea of the typical weight of one of these units, and better still if I had a weight distribution on the axles, I can calculate what type of wind speed it would take to push one over.

Also, if anyone has a unit that they might be selling in about 6 to 9 months, I would appreciate you contacting me. Thanks to all and happy trails.

I have owned several toyota motorhomes all 22r or 22re. Both manual and automatic. The automatic transmission will not last if pulling a trailer regardless of adding a cooler, synthetic fluid, multiple coolers, etc. It won't last. A manual transmission will with a knowledgeable driver. I have pulled 2 lifted honda 4x4 4 wheelers on a 8x10 over 1200mi with zero issues into the mountains of Virginia and Kentucky. My wife and I used to pack 2 4 wheelers a 4500 generator a 2004 Honda cbr1000rr for a weekend getaway. As with pulling any trailer be aware of your surroundings brake early, extra time to signal and change lanes, and watch for people trying to speed past. Enjoy your toy home
