Which is the reason why I don't understand small trucks. I have seen Tacomas on the lot for $32,000 also. If you get the same fuel economy as a full size truck and you pay as much money as a full size truck then why not have a full size truck? When asked about this some small truck owners will tell you how much they like them anyway. I had small trucks when they were $12,000 and got 25 mpg. I know someone that just traded a Frontier for a Silverado. As a side note, I can sometimes accelerate faster with the house in tow than some other unloaded trucks.

2013 GL350 with our 28 Ft International and delighted with 15-17 mpg towing. 26 gal tank means pretty good range as well.

I like the look of that! Did you have to beef up the hitch? What kind of weight distribution do you use?

That is one of the best testimonials I've seen.

A big truck is still...big. In most parking lots I have to park well away from others to find a spot that's long enough and wide enough.

The other day I squeezed into the only spot available in a lot only to have to move because I could not get out of the cab.

As soon as the kids are old enough to be able to get in and out of the car without help, I'll be getting one of these - the BlueTEC Diesel version. Until then, the Odyssey will have to do.

The very best TV currently on the market, in my opinion, and an excellent daily driver too.

Hahahaha. Sorry.


I'm an each to their own kind of guy. Want to tow with a truck? Knock yourself out. It's not for me, but I'm not going to start an argument about it.

You and me both. I've got an almost identical setup. Matter of fact, I'll be down in London on the 25th, having a Hensley fitted.
