Is there anyone else out there who has personal experience with pulling a light travel trailer (GVWR max 5,000lbs) with a V-6 equipped with a tow package?
I really want to stay small and light, and avoid a big ol' full-size SUV or truck, because I don't anticipate to be physically towing more than about 10% of the time, that's more vehicle than i want or need for just myself and my pooch for day to day driving.
I live in SoCal and my intentions are to travel to various areas of the West, Northwest and Southwest of the country. I'm not planning any strenuous mountain treks such as the Teton Pass between IA and WY, but I do understand I'll be faced with some degree of up and downhill traveling (I am familiar with that just going 50 miles from home over the Grapevine towards Bakersfield).
I would really appreciate anyone with real-time experience towing a TT with a V-6.
