Hi, we just purchased our Rpod 171 with all the goodies! We pull this cutie with our 2012 Volvo XC6OR. We have about 3800lbs towing capacity! Lots of power with this SUV!!

Glad to see your post. We are buying a RP180 and plan to tow with a Honda Ridgeline. The Ridgeline has a 5,000 lb rating and my driving habits are about like yours so I should get similar results.

Not a pod, but a 2300 LB (Base) T12RBST. Actual loaded weight with a motorcycle on the back is 3000 Lbs. 2014 Acura MDX does a great job and gets 22 MPG with its 3.5L GDI engine and AWD.

Finally got our new R-Pod 180 about 2 weeks ago. From north Alabama to southern Ohio with about a 1,000 pounds of cargo,without pod, averaged 18 MPG going to pick up the R-Pod. Coming back the fuel mileage varied from as low as 10 MPG in the hills and mountains of Kentucky back roads (US 127) on a hot day. Once we got out of the big hills and down in southern Kentucky and Tennessee to Alabama the mileage went up to 12 MPG while staying at around 60 mph.
The Ridgeline handles the R-Pod well with little or no swaying, (do have a off brand sway bar).
No Interstate for the entire trip other than through Cincinntti and Chattanooga.

I've read through all of this and have to ask.

We have a new 2016 Subaru outback 2.5i with trailer package. Rated 2700 and are considering a rPod 171 or 172. I read

Quote:
Will be getting an aftermarket tranny cooler installed this week.
Which worries me.

Is this enough car for a lightly loaded 171 or 172? If we are close are there things we will need to add ( aftermarket tranny cooler??).

2016 Chevy Colorado, 3.6, 7000 lb capacity, Prodigy brake control and sway bar. Catpack exhaust and cold air induction. Significant MPG decrease when towing, but easily goes 65 to 70 if needed.
