Thanks! Happy Holidays to you guys too!


Yeah I barely knew it was behind me and I saw the tach drop down to 1500rpm's while doing 60 so should hopefully give me similar gas rateings(I hope!) as not towing.

I'm hoping being heavier will cut down on sway effects during higher winds since the Frontier is a good chunk heavier then my Rav4 was.

Gas mileage with my F-150 doesn't drop much towing #006, mostly because my mileage isn't great anyways. We've got 30 mpg with Gail's Escape on trips, but I bet we'll be lucky to get 1/2 that towing 006? If that turns out to be the case, we'll be better off using the truck.

Best of luck Deryk. That's a great truck ya got there!

Congrats Deryk, looking good! I think you'll be a lot happier with the clearance on your new tug.

The curves on the truck make it look like the perfect match for the Parkliner! Congrats on the beautiful new wheels.

The Frontier is a nice truck. It has a comfortable ride, is well thought out, and the engine/ transmission work well together. I started with a 4wd 2009 Crew Cab. Had to have a door lock actuator replaced under warranty. Other than that, no issues. At 42k I traded in for a 2012. Also 4wd. At 10k miles no issues. I typically get >18 mpg on the highway with the Trillium but have seen as low as 15 mpg towing in city traffic. I bought a soft tonneau cover ($250) for the 2009 that I now use on the 2012. Recently Thule came out with a roof rack. It's pricey but very well made. It sure beats foam blocks for carrying the canoe. As I recall Tim Wood is pulling his Parkliner with a Frontier and Alf uses one to pull his Escape 5.0. You're in good company . Enjoy your new truck. Raz

P.S. I don't know about Tim's but both Alf and I have white ones too.

I was looking for a white one since it would look good towing my ParkLiner lol... a few years ago a guy at work got a white van and I foolishly said "I don't think I would ever buy a white vehicle" the Rav4 was a good price but in white I bought it. Now with a white fiberglass caravan, they look great together lol...I'm cursed lol

Same here Deryk. White was always the very last option.
Then in 2000 we bought a white 2000 GMC. Beautiful truck
with a few personal touches. Sadly it got totalled out.
Now when I look at new vehicles I look for that white version.
