If so, what do you tow? and do you have any other related details or stories?

Cheers

MY 1985 Bonair BA1300. The wife and I, plus pup had vacation plans pre-Covid that included rock climbing and camping in Tennessie and Kentucky. We love RRG in KY, and were excited about exploring the Obed and Clear Creek in TN. The trailer weights about 1500 LBS loaded. I picked it up 8 years ago on Kijiji, and what a find. She's all original except for the DIY hubcaps that match my Element rims and now my Passport. I cant wait for the day when things open back up again and we can plan our next vacation.

I planned to tow a couple of motorcycles on a 6x10 trailer I already had, but after trading in my Tacoma for the Passport, I realized I needed a new trailer. I towed the empty 6x10 when I sold it and it actually didn't feel to bad trailing behind the PP, but that was empty. One bike is 865 and the other is 675, so that would have made the tongue weight over 300lbs and tow weight now over 3800lbs...that seemed to be pushing it for me.

Ordered a Stinger motorcycle trailer (320lbs) to only tow one at a time...don't think it'll be a problem now.

Sounds great, me too, I'm ready to hit our mountains again.

OFF TOPIC: Can you please explain exactly how you posted your photos? (including the sizes)

We tow a 2013 Aliner with our Passport. Weight is about 1700# if I recall...so super light weight and easy to tow. That said, it was at the top of what our Forester could tow, so the added capacity with the Honda is appreciated. Gas mileage while towing has been incredible easily average over 20 mpg over the 7,000+ miles we have towed over the last year...some tanks as high as 24. Loaded. And towing.

Of note, the 9sp transmission has been fantastic for towing. Sport mode holds gears nicely and downshifts promptly, and the paddle shifters allow my to hold gears on long downhills. Perfect.
