So far our outback tows this setup just fine. Recently did a 100mi. trip to our local desert and not one hiccup while towing including a very long steep twisty climb. Driving gingerly, our engine oil temp stayed under 250 degrees during the climb and ambient air temps at the time were ~50-45 degrees. I would not attempt that in the warmer months for obvious reasons. I need to get a scan gauge to monitor trans temps for our next trip. Flat highway towing tends to buck the car quite a bit regardless of load inside the trailer but Im thinking that will diminish to some degree with the brake controller installed and working.
Anyway just wanted to share our setup and show that our outbacks can get the job done. The Intech Flyer Chase is perfect for our needs, I would recommend to anyone who wants a small, well built and light trailer.
We have a long trip planned to Tahoe this year so it will be interesting to see how it will do. Possibly looking at a Aux Trans cooler to be added depending on what my readings are. Also if you plan to tow frequently then more frequent Diff services are in order which we will be performing.
