    Towing was easy. I had an easy 500 lbs of gear and also the weight of the uhaul trailer. I could certainly tell the trailer was there but it didn't feel unsafe.

    For testing purposes I pulled in 5th and 6th gears at speeds from 50-80. I found that I got 21mpg at 65mph in 5th gear. Not too bad considering I get about 6mpg in my other towing machine.

    Overall I'm happy I put the hitch on and was able to use my VT to tow an enclosed trailer.
    Sorry I went back to first post. It answered my question. I apologize

    No. The 4x8(originally thought it was 4x6) was heavy by itself but the VT stopped the trailer with the gear loaded with no problem. Loading over the wheelbase of the trailer was key to getting a good pull.

    Thanks for the info on this thread. Towed this waverunner about 140 miles with no issue, and getting 27mpg to top it off. This little car keeps impressing me.
