Downside of Full-Size TV

Was hit up today by a new golf buddy to tow his 21' Sportfishing boat 40 miles to the mechanic for an annual because he burned his brakes on his '03 Jeep Grand Cherokee doing it last time. Said it cost him $1,000. Those with pickups no doubt can relate So, what's the rule- borrow twice then get your own?

Other than that I really like the change from our Highlander to the Yukon. Less nimble around town yet little difference in MPG. On the road though it is a champ! Cruise at 60 mph/2500 rpm towing. Can't seem to get more than 13 mpg towing, however hearing about the older Frontier towing a 17B with 14 mpg reminded me its OK.

I would say sure towing it, BUT it will cost you the boat for a weekend.

Cheers

Awesome; great tip. What an idiot I didn't think of that

After all it does need to be tested to make sure the boat shop did a good job
