I guess it would be a diesel Colorado at 28/30 mpg ($28k). That's actually not a bad price, IMO.

Soon it will be a Workhorse Endurance ($50k) or a Rivian ($60k).

Ebay would charge $171.75 for a towing package, but that doesn't show tax and it shows $0 for shipping, but maybe that would update if I gave it an address.

How much weight would that add?

So, would it make more sense to rent a trailer or offer my neighbor $20 to borrow his?

For a homemade modern version of the Caddy Smyth Kit Cars

My 2003 Jetta Wagon TDI returned 50 mpg plus on the highway and averaged 46 mpg over 10 years.

Makes me wonder how that powertrain would fare in a current-generation Saveiro

I see five trucks on the fleet list that are currently getting over 30 MPG: https://ecomodder.com/forum/bestgasmileage.php. My truck is looking good right now, but mileage normally drops to 31-32 MPG in the winter: https://ecomodder.com/forum/showthre...yon-17070.html.
