Congrats Gina!

A friend of mine here recently bought a Liberty, and then jumped on the 19' Bigfoot that was listed here in Seattle. They drove out, picked it up, and towed the Bigfoot all the way home, with a Prodigy and E-qual-izer brand WDH. He said they didn't have any major issues at all and was pleasantly surprised by how well the combo did; although the gas mileage was less than spectacular.

I suspect that the Liberty might be a SIGNIFICANTLY better tow vehicle for the Burro than the Element.

19 foot Bigfoot and a Liberty? not for me tyvm. Yes, I know the manufacturer says 5000 pounds....on a 104 inch wheelbase.

I would tow a 13 though. Nice suv Gina.

I'd like to do some long trips in the next few years, so something that could carry all our stuff (bikes and kayaks etc) plus tow Bubba, but still get good gas mileage would be ideal.
Maybe that's an impossible dream ?
Paula, you might just want to look at an Element. Keep the trailer weight down, and be careful about the gear you load into the car, the E meets all these needs.

I didn't buy the Jeep to replace the Element, I kept it, and I am using the Jeep mostly as my daily driver.

The Element was getting too high up in milage for me to rely on it as an all purpose vehicle with my long and hard commute. Thats the only reason for a new car.
