I have just purchased a 93 Subaru Liberty Wagon in good condition with a 2.2 litre motor. It has a towing capacity of 1200 kg's.I have been looking for a Jayco Finch
which seems like a perfect size. Will the liberty tow the Jayco Dove with out too much extra strain and fuel consumption. It has just that much extra room for a trip from Adelaide Darwin Kimberly W.A. Nullabour and home. All thoughts and ideas welcome...............Thanks ............ Glenn

If you know anyone with a dove, get the electric brakes connected then ask if you can tow it for a test.
