Still towing, since new, a 1991 Saturn SL1, automatic. The car keeps on running. This Saturn has been towed behind two motorhomes in the past 18 years.

Hi all. Happy to see some enclosed trailers being towed. We tow a 22' cargo carrier by Pace American. In it, we have a small work shop, Harley Ultra in front of work bench, Jeep Grand Cherokee that is used to move trailer around tight campgrounds or to escape from dead end streets that are caused by operator error! On the back we carry a small Yamaha 200cc for local errands. When we travel to Mexico, the trailer stays in the U.S. and we tow the Jeep 4 down. The weight of trailer ready to roll is arounnnnnnd 10,000lbs. Anyway, the MH with a 400hp Cummins gets 14 mpg west to east and 8 mpg east to west. ( Don't average the averages!!!) Speed is always 57mph. Consistently get 10.4 mpg. The Jeep gets from 14 to 20mpg at 70 mph. You know, thats real close to the MH!? Happy travels to all.

We tow a 2008 Honda CR-V with the Sterling All-Terrain hitch and US Gear Unified Brake. It is so simple and easy to hook up the Honda. It's also our first Honda ever and we like it a lot. Tows like it's not there and drives very nice.

Just started, but Had my 2004 Jeep Liberty 4 x4 rigged at the dealer for Blue Oxe and Brake Buddy use. Left the dealer in Virginia, in January, and towed back to Michigan.

I need to find out more about battery drain if I were to tow more than one day w/o running the Liberty. Saw something in Highways about a battery disconnect that uses RV current to run Brake buddy and charge Liberty battery?

Did tow a 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Got rear ended a few months ago and insurance company totaled it out. I now tow my backup which is a 1987 Suzuki Samurai. Great little tow car, albeit a little rough riding, and lacks Air conditioning, but will do for now.

Jeep Commander

We had gone to an RV show and saw a cool towing kit that went under the hood, not in front of the drivers seat. We flat two with all four wheels down. No extra miles, which is nice. Also as you brake the RV you will send a charge to the batteries, which keeps them charged. The company name of the tow under the hood I seem to recall came from Power Supplies out of Tampa, Florida. They may have a company in your area.
