I bought a new trailer and was foolish enough to tow it with my Prius V. I used it to carry extra belongings on a trip to a family funeral. Despite the car being extremely overloaded with 3 people, a babies car seat, and luggage, I still managed to get an average 44mpg on the highway with the a/c on. Of course I was a rolling roadblock since I was only going 71mph in a 70mph zone, but somehow even though I impeded the flow of traffic I made it back alive. Anyway despite getting 44 mpg with a full load in a Prius V while towing, I am sure I did irreparable damage to my car by taxing it so, with the trailer and such. I mean my lawnmower can tow this trailer all day long, but I realize this is a different story with aerodynamic drag and such.
I realize the error of my ways and I need a new vehicle to tow with so I can drive my natural speed which is about 85-90mph to keep up with traffic so I am not impeding anybody and I am safe.
I am thinking of an f-250, but I want to be on the safe side so maybe a F-350. Do I need a diesel, or will the V-10 do ok?
Oh…I occasionally buy 8-10 bags of mulch as well, I normally put it in the prius but I probably smoke the electric motors every time I do.
Oh heres the trailer.
P.S. In case you missed it, I am being a tad bit facetious here. Why do some people think you need such a huge vehicle to go to home depot once a month to buy a 2x4? I see it all the time around here.
