I have to confess that I submitted in units of IMPG. But I also provided comparable values in USMPG and L/100km, just so that all my bases were covered.

The combo feels great... The only thing you really notice is the extra width of the trailer as you maneuver through tight areas. The car itself doesn't run any hotter than it does without the trailer either, and also has plenty of power for passing when necessary.

Canadian gallons and Imperial gallons are the same. An Imperial gallon is approximately 4.54 litres where a US gallon is approximately 3.78 litres. As an example, 50 mpg Imperial would equal approximately 41.6 mpg US. Hope that helps!

Hi Norm:

I keep trying the link above and keep getting old information. I'm not seeing any of the updates that you've been doing. Any ideas?

Al

2600 lbs for a 19' Escape? Really? Is this possible a typo?

seems about 1000lbs lighter than other 19' Escape weights I have heard off as well as those on the Real World Weight thread.

Found an error in the line listing luverOlife setup. Only because I was looking for those who tow a 19 ft. 5th wheel Scamp.

That's the dry weight according to specs.

Paul, I believe all the Scamp 19 listings are correct now.

As to Shannon's Escape, I've sent her a PM asking if that is the dry weight.

I generally do not correct submitted information unless I hear from the poster.

Thanks for your help.. I believe we'll gradually get it correct. Many postings have been updated and improved by the owners over time. Thank you to everyone for making it better.
