Every make has a bad experience. I could regale you with stories of angry "insert brand" vehicle owners. Really what it comes down to is what you want and what the coach can pull. The S chassis Saturn is by far the best toad for your money. Yet I understand the appeal of having a Porsche to roll around in too!

For me the extra 1,000 to 2,500 lbs of a dolly or trailer was a nonstarter.
Tho towing with a trailer would let you back up, a plus.
But would be a third vehicle to be parked when not being used.
Plus anouther tag, registration, ins. to be maintained

Older 911s came in around 2,500 lbs and can tow four down.
Stylistically a good fit to my eye.

Makes for a lot of conversations while stopped.

The old classic mini would be a nice fit also.

Cheers Richard

Great looking the paint. Just to throw a fly in the ointment I tie my volt behind the 325LE on a dolly. The added bonus is I get to charge it a the campground while we are there, very few trips exceed the 50 mile charge range so it is great. The tow doily has disc surge brakes and works awesome. I did reinforce the hitch before I started to use it and I plan on using the same car for towing behind the 370LE

Thanks Bob, the dark green that Ravson put over the maroon does look good to me too. That's the "good side". As the clear coat is really patchy on the other side. Really want to clean up the look but not interested in living with a polished rig.

One upside of these modern alternate fuel vehicles is the presuit of lightness, in the quest of good fuel consumption. But also plays into our need of towable vehicles.

Cheers Richard
