Towed our monster of a tent trailer for the first time this weekend. It's a 2006 Aliner Sportliner that weighs in at a whopping 800lbs. The KL got better fuel economy pulling the trailer on the highway then it does driving around town with no trailer--averaged 9 litres per 100 KM. It was hard to stay between 80 and 90 kilometres per hour, but that's what the manual says we're supposed to do for the first 800 KM. Lots of power going up hills, and the high position of the hitch makes connection quick and easy. Needless to say it's quite an improvement over pulling this trailer with our Pontiac Vibe AWD!

I realized the previous photo link broke so here's an updated one. Pulling with High Altitude. With WD and Sway Control it's pulling beautifully.

First time towing. Round trip to WV from Toronto and back - 500 miles each way. Trailer is _very_ low to the ground. But everything handled just great!

Just picked this up a couple of weeks ago. Clipper 17FQS, with a dry weight of 3277lbs. Tows well, but I haven't taken it very far yet...two trips, first 100km away, second one 120km away. I feel the trailer jerk pretty good with some wind, but I really can't complain.
