Default Towing capacity

I'm looking into the Baja T and I know it is rated for 2400lbs towing capacity. My question is has anyone towed anything with the Baja T. I have an ATV, jet ski and snowmobile which weigh aboutg 800lbs each. Obviously I wouldn't tow all 3 at once but I'm looking into getting a second ATV and jet ski. Does anyone know if the Baja T is capable of towing 2 800lbs ATV's and trailer? Also does the car feel different when towing? ie. strained or swaying?

Thanks,
Mike

I have the Baja sport, no turbo, but I have towed my 1800 lb. pop up trailer with no problems. I could tell the trailer was behind me, but the Baja did not strain too much. I even had 300 lbs. (or more) of camping gear and firewood in the back of the Baja. I camp in a remote place and the two tracker trail was a bit rough in places so I did make full use of the suspension, but that is not ordinary towing conditions either.

I think you could tow two ATV's or Jetski's if you drive smart. Give extra time for acceleration and braking.

I will be towing a 7x12 Box cargo trailer with my baja..I need to install the 7 prong plug tho...It should be done in a week or two so i'll let you know how it is. I think it will be fine..At the ATV park I work with I saw an 03 Baja towing a flat bed with 2 Honda utilities on it.. So you should be fine!

It's rated for 2400 lb if you have trailer brakes. if you don't, it's rated only for 1000 lbs. Check the owners manual for further info on towing.

Does anyone have what the manual says about towing since I don't have one. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could scan it or tell me the basic points of it.
