Towing my new camping trailer
I picked up my new camper today, an Aliner Ranger. It weighs about 1,350lbs dry. I have electric brakes on the trailer and a Tekonsha Primus IQ controller installed.
Towing was much easier than I expected. The Outback pulled with no problems and didn't really seem to mind the weight back there.
The place I picked up the trailer was about 115 miles away. Going there I got 26.4mpg from the computer and on the way home with the trailer it said 24.3mpg. Not too shabby.
Basically, I just wanted to let people know that my 2.5i with 6MT can tow a popup camper just fine... no need for a big V8 truck.
