My wife and I decided we would not tow and she will drive the car,I’ll follow her. So far it seems to be working well for us. She drives a Kia Soul getting 35-37 miles a gallon and 10-10.5 with the class C. Just interested to see how many others go this route.

My ex would do that; I'd leave with the trailer and she'd follow. Somehow along the way she'd get delayed and wouldn't make it to the campground until right after I got set up. That ruined the peace and quiet.

What was your reasoning for the decision?

If towing the car lowered your mileage to 8mpg from 10, then it's break-even on the fuel.

After looking at the expense of buying and setting up a tow car,insurance,maintaining and insurance. This is what I do. In the long run it makes much better sense dollar wise,for me.

It has worked well.

I guess that means you're getting 45 MPG, lol.

We don’t but if it suits y’all then go for it. It seemed to work for Smokey and the Bandit. If wife follows you and you have communication with her, she could make lane changes easier for you by sliding over and allowing you room.

My wife and I prefer to spend our travel time together so this would be a "no go" for us.
