It towed alright. I pulled it from Vancouver to Toronto. That's 2 mountain ranges, hours and hours and hours of prairies, hot curvy Ontario roads. The only issue I had was I loaded the trailer with the CofG to far aft, causing it to sway big time when I would hit about 55 mph. I was by myself, so unloading the trailer wasn't an option. I had loaded my winter tires for the other car last, and they're on rims so pretty heavy. The solution was to remove the tires and ratchet strap them to the roof rack - makes for amazing fuel economy

My X is a manual, didn't see 6th gear the entire time, unless it was a huge down hill - even then I would keep it in 5th or 4th to keep the brakes cool. 4th and 5th pulled fine, about 110KPH the entire drive.

Sure.

Here's what I did: advanced search, titles only, "towing"

PS: my ipad doesn't have the search function on this forum (and pics don't show up on the iPad either, not that that pertains here) so I couldn't produce a link for you before.

It connects to a surge brake setup so I'll have to go with the bumping. Inside my surge unit there's a shock absorber that takes up most of the bump.
Peeps have made adapters to use a ball hitch but the pintle as better articulation.

VERY NICE!!!

Just wondering how much does the trailer weight in total and how is the gas mileage when towing it compare to not towing?

Thanks

Very nice, unamused! That does look pretty big... How much she weigh? I just want to keep it fairly light to keep wear and tear/gas mileage down...
