What do you tow with your 36LA? Do you find it has enough guts for hills?

I flat tow a 2900lb 2012 focus. Don't know it's there. Been over the Rockies and sierras a few times with no problems.
In places I'm only going 45mph, but that's ok with me. I haven't been on any grades steeper than what the Interstate system throws at me.

I tow a 2014 ford fiesta on a tow master dolly. Just returned from a 6700 mile trip through the Rockies. My experiences were same as Rkh. Did experience an 8 percent grade and managed about 40. Most of the time I drive 65 mph and don't know I'm towing.

towing a 3500 trailer with a 1585 lb. motorcycle

We went over Big Horn last year towing trailer and motorcycle with a 36LA. It was 28 miles up and needless to say it was 28 miles down. Did 35 up and did everything I could coming down. Brakes got a little hot but no problem. I was told by a older gentlemen in a truck stop out west you don't have to be the first one over the hill you just have to get over the hill 35 is just fine. But I'll not be going that way next year on way out to Yellowstone.

The most popular toad has to be the Honda CRV. 7 out of 10 baseplates I install at work are on CRV's.

That business will go down now that the CR-V is no longer towable.

2005 to 2007 4wd Jeep Liberties are good cheaper toads. lot of negative info on internet about them, but seem to work fine, even if they might need a repair. Dave
