We plan of doing test towing tomorrow. But, our first real tow test is at the end of April headed to Kerrville, TX to meet up with friends.
Sounds very nice, best of luck!
Does your rearview camera have the option to display its picture driving down the road (not just when in reverse)? I have found it comforting to watch things for a bit when first starting out to make sure toad is tracking straight and everything looks good. I don't know if you have to unlock the Subaru's steering column prior to towing, don't ask me how I know that is critical in some vehicles!
I also depend on my TPMS to watch the toad's tires. While the new Subaru has its own TPMS for when you are driving it, that doesn't help when towing. And there are plenty of scary stories about flats on towed vehicles that are never recognized by the driver until it is too late. A wise investment for any setup in my opinion be it a towed trailer or car.
