The AirZoo at Kalamazoo airport is another great place for aviation enthusiasts.

In Asheville NC, near the Grove Park Inn, there is a very small car museum of maybe 2 dozen cars. (not sure on the exact number) There is an REO there https://www.romanticasheville.com/an...car_museum.htm

Yeah, seems like a lotta trailer for that car. I had a Casita 17, as opposed to this Escape 19. Both molded fiberglass, which is heavier than the fiberglass panels most of us have. I would not have pulled the Casita with a car.

That Tesla Model X is actually heavier than my RAM 1500 due to the batteries. It's rated for 5000 lbs so I'd think it has no issues with the trailer.

Wheelbase could be an issue, I think. The towing capacity of the X is same as the gross weight of the trailer, so doable in that respect, but I wouldn't do it. Just me.
