RE: Braxton Creek LX

Watched the video and I get the impression that this is his first RV and the shock of not having a perfectly built trailer is a great disappointment. Unfortunately, pretty much all of his "issues" (except for the shower) could be considered as completely normal for the RV industry. Sad/disappointing/frustrating.....YES. The reality of the industry......unfortunatley....YES.

RE: upgrading to mesa ridge

Highland Ridge has been around since 2014 when Jayco bought them out. Prior to that they were Open Range RV. So, they've been around a long time. BIL had an Open Range trailer and it held up well for him and his 3 sons/2dogs.

RE: Real life Hybrid towing experiences

This is what we ended up with. :) https://i.imgur.com/osneICkl.jpg Volvo XC60 Recharge. Tow rating of 3500lbs. Pup ups will be what we'll tow. Trust me, I know ALL about the numbers, so don't worry. ;)

RE: Real life Hybrid towing experiences

"If your choice of SUV will be a daily driver and your expectations are that you'll get better mileage commuting and have the ability to tow a small trailer, than your expectations should be met. " That's it in a nutshell. Have no illusions that towing MPG would be any better than a conventional SUV. I gave up on the "what's my towing MPG calculation going to be on this leg of the trip" a long time ago. I'm camping, so what it costs to get there is what it costs to get there....no worries. :)

RE: Real life Hybrid towing experiences

Mid-sized SUV because it's the DW driving it most of the time and she doesn't want a truck or anything full-size. Also, we have two dogs, so the SUV works best for us/them.

Real life Hybrid towing experiences

Hi folks, Looking for some insight from those who have towed with a mid-size SUV hybrid. DW and I are a single-vehicle household and are hoping to get into a slightly bigger vehicle than our current '13 Honda CRV. With a son living/working in Europe with no intentions of returning, we are going to have to afford trips to see him....especially after his upcoming wedding and potential grand-babies shortly after. She's already made such noises.....yay!! That said, I've told DW that I am not willing to completely give up on camping as I simply miss all the fresh air etc. With that, I'm thinking we'll end up with a pop-up or very small TT. We're looking into a Toyota Highlander Hybrid with 3500lbs towing capacity as well as the Ford Explorer Hybrid with 5000lbs towing. Trust me, I'd love to have a truck/5th wheel again, but that simply isn't in the cards. So, anybody out there using their Hybrid in such a fashion?
