Buick Enclave

Just returned from a 2200 mile trip towing our EggCamper for the first time with our (new to us) 2011 Buick Enclave. The Buick is a very capable and satisfactory tow vehicle. It has a 6 speed transmission. Most of the time it is in either 5th or 6th gear. Sometimes it downshifts to 4th but not excessively. Mpg figures ranged from a low of 12 point something to a high of 18 point something with a majority of readings being about 15 give or take a point or two on either side. Factors affecting mpg were speed (mostly between 55 and 60), hills, traffic, wind. In addition, it has a very comfortable and quiet ride and the heated/cooled seats are now necessities of our lives.

You have a highly respected/capable TV rg as you have found out.

A couple Enclave users have commented that they out performed their previous V8 suv's/pickups even towing at the max tow rating.

Glad you're liking it. And are those back supporting camp chairs working out well, too?

They are excellent. Never thought a folding chair could be so comfortable.
