Towing with a dt466
Hey guys, my girlfriend and I just recently pulled the trigger on an 8 window, 2004 Bluebird with a dt466e and an Allison 2000 transmission. In a week we'll be driving it from Park City, Utah to Buffalo, New York where we will be converting it to our super rad home on wheels! We were thinking about getting a hitch put on and towing my Corolla back to New York with a car dolly. The GVWR of my bus is 33,000. My question for you guys is will the dt466 engine have enough power to pull an extra 3k lbs across the country? I drove it back to Utah from Colorado where I bought it and it slowed to about 40-45mph chugging up any sort of significant incline on the highway. I was wondering if that's just how buses are, the governor was choking power, or the dt466e albeit a very good engine is still a 6 cylinder with a decent amount of body weight. Welcome to any input.
Also I just wanted to say this site has given me a lot more confidence in making the switch to skoolie life this past year or so, I appreciate you lending your expertise. Thanks!
