Towing with a 4 banger 2.5

I'm thinking about getting a dirt bike, but I'm worried about towing it with the 4 banger... What do you all think?

How far? Where (terrain) and how big of a trailer?

If its just a single trailer for the dirt bike you should be fine.

Yeah, just a single dirt bike plus gear and gravel roads with some incline.
Cheers...

shouldnt have a problem at all. my buddys daughter has a early 90's suburban and she broke down on the highway. he towed it roughly 60 or so miles up a decent moutain and made it home no probs. just couldnt get it to go above 40 or so MPH....LOL

Id say a dirtbike and some gear shouldnt be a prob at all....

Heck I hauled a ton of pellets (1 pallet=50-40lb bags) in my trailer 15 miles going uphill all the way. The little 4 hamster was straining towards the end, but made it fine. Moves right along with a typical "dump load" in the trailer, so you should be fine.
