I drive down to the local cement factory at the bottom of my hill that has a truck scale and weigh it periodically cause i keep adding stuff...helps to keep an eye on it just to remind me to keep it light.

So how did it go? Which one did you choose? Not only is your warranty expired , but they don't even make Saturns anymore!
The lesson here is to choose the fiberglass trailer that you like...
Tow vehicles come and go, but FIBERGLASS IS FOREVER!

Very well put Floyd. Sounds like you purchase the cart before the horse?
We are still shopping and dealing with the fact that we have a 2011 Lexus CT200h (hybrid) that would not be rated to pull anything, and a 2009 Honda Element (rated to tow 1500#). Our thoughts are leading us to something bigger like the Escape 19' or ParkLiner, just so many choices.

We will be looking at the 6cyl Rav4 and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited today.

Have a wonderful day everyone!
Lew

Actually we had our Ranger for years before we bought our 2004 Scamp, but our Ford Escape was bought with the Scamp in mind. While you are at the Jeep dealer , check out the 2012 Liberty before they are all gone.
The Parkliner is only 15 ft and is much more towable than a 19 Escape. Properly equipped, the Liberty would handle either.
Do yourself a favor and check out the new Explorer (for the 19 Escape)while you are out and about, (or the new Ford Escape for the Parkliner).
Remember that if you're writing the check, you should buy the car for YOU and not for the neighbors!

Thank you, Floyd for the info on the Liberty and Explorer. I did check out the Explorer, but not the new Escape (none on the lot). As for the Liberty, I missed your last post until this evening and only drove the Wrangler this morning. BTW....I have owned a few Wranglers and I was completely surprised on how well the Jeep drove, the power, the shifting....it is nothing like my most recent Wrangler. There is just something about having that roof off. What a stress reliever!
We will be making another trip down to the dealer sometime in late Sept, and I'll take a look at the Liberty at that time.
Again, thank you!
Lew
