In any case, I was stunned at how well it pulled. After that I barely noticed when semi's/vehicles passed as the reaction became more natural.
The way back I spent a little more time trying to adjust the weight because the dealer didn't level out the trailer properly. This helped quite a bit. If I had access to my tools I would have dropped the head on the drawbar another few inches. Somewhere in the last 50 miles I blew a tire on the trailer but didn't realize it until we were parking it back at the dealer.
The trip was mostly interstate going 60 mph in 3rd over over nothing but hills and mountains in TN. The Path didn't feel overburdened except when accelerating uphill, but it would maintain speed just fine. The V8 version ups the tow rating another 1000 lbs, but I along with others think this size/weight range is probably near the safe limits of the vehicle.
My only complaint is that I should have invested in better tow mirrors because the cheapos from Walmart were awful.
