Our 11 year old G35 works great as a TV. The other day I spotted for sale a very nice 2006 Mazda 3 GT/hatchback with the 2.3 Auto. Going back to have a look at it today. Thinking it would be a great TV for a small egg if we ever decided to go that route.

Here's my daily's and the 60 Avion and the new generation 80 Burro . The age of a tow vehicle has absolutely nothing to do with how it performs, its the upgrades, the foundation, the maintenence and its ABILITY to do the job safely .

Folks - we've removed some posts from this thread that were pretty snarky. If you have concerns about a post please use the report button and let the site team handle the issue.

Regarding posting to old threads - they are open for a reason; so that the conversation can be continued when appropriate. We've had members update restoration threads, trip reports and other threads that are many years old. This is one of the great values of forums.

Finally a stern reminder: our members come in all shapes sizes and with various rv ownership history. All are welcome here so long as they abide by our terms of service and contribute in an appropriate way. All our members deserve to be met with respectful responses even when there may be disagreement about the details of a post.

Thanks for helping us keep the board friendly, fun and informative.
