"All-in-all, I'd say let the Miata be a sports car and find something competent to tow with if you want to drag a trailer around".

Reminds me way back when I had a 1962 MG Midget sports car, I used to pull a 13' Glen-L water ski boat with a big Merc on it, fortunately you could see under the hull of the boat when towing.

Sure wouldn't want to tow with my wife's older MX-5 Miata, but we did do a 7,500 Km road trip a few years ago from Victoria, taking in Crater Lake, Reno, Fallon, Salt Lake City, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, top down in sleet over the Highway to the Sun mostly camping with the occasional Motel/KOA cabana. Sure got a lot of looks setting up the tent and gear from the big rig owners. Now we can travel in real comfort.

Looking forward to a road trip with my Escape 17 and my just purchased 04 Pathfinder TV. We plan to head down to southern Utah, Grand Canyon next month and have already planned a month trip in November to the Baja.

Anyone towing with an 01-04 Pathfinder, hoping we won't need an equalizer.

How 'bout my wife's Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 as a tow car?

Unfortunately, we no longer have either the Burro nor the Mitsu... and for those inquiring minds who want to know, they were just parked like this... the Mitsu couldn't tow a little red wagon... despite it's massive horsepower!
