Hi, all. For 2.5 years I have been towing a popup with my 2008 Honda Odyssey. Today, the Odyssey died. The transmission is shot, and the alternator also died and took the battery with it. Died on the highway, and we were blocking a lane. Cops were out there with blue lights to alert fellow drivers. It was a good time. Happy Friday, I guess. Nobody was hurt, and we have another vehicle to drive, and we're all safely at home now. First world problems and all... I expect the estimate for the repair will come back in the $2,500 to $3k range, and it's just not worth putting that into a tow vehicle that's only worth $600-$1,400. My wife and kids really want a Suburban. I'd love a Suburban too -- I love everything about them, except for the cost. Also, we are considering switching out our popup for a hybrid, and to do that I need a bigger tow vehicle anyway. Yeah I wouldn't need the Suburban for that, but it should pull a hybrid pretty easily. I'm personally a VW TDI fan (my car is a 2013 Jetta TDI), and would consider a Touareg. Anybody here tow with a one of those? I don't see many responses when I search for that on these forums. They have a 7,700 pound towing capacity. For a hybrid trailer, what would you consider? Total purchase price and monthly payment are both major factors here. Thanks.
