    I tow a 2017 Jayco 19XUD. I know it's back there, but it pulls fine.

    I tow a 3000 lb. hybrid with a 2004 Chevy Express full size van, 5.3L with tow/haul mode. Tons of room, huge gas tank. Mine is a hitop conversion, which limits the towing capacity, but a regular Express 1500 should be able to tow around 6400 pounds. Full size vans are inexpensive compared to SUVs and pickups.

    I recently sold my suburban and purchased a 2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty Platinum Powerstroke 6.7 Diesel.
    Of course it pulls the pop up great.
    Maybe I get a larger camper someday or maybe I don’t. Either way I love this truck.

    That inch of snow we got was all we got this winter and all we've had for several years now. Makes for nice camping though all winter here in Texas. Looks beautiful out your way too.

    I tow my 2014 forest river shamrock with our 2010 Toyota Highlander. It does better than I thought. The real big hills we at about to do at 60 mph at 3200 rpms. We will upgrade to a pickup truck when the highlander hits 200000 miles.

    We do average a few inches per year here and moved here because of that. Nice drift you show there. How many might you receive per year there?

    We'll usually get about 2 feet of snow every winter. The thing here is that it gets so cold here that the snow doesn't melt from November until about April, so the new snow just accumulates on top of the old snow. Average temperature here in January/February is about -22C (-7.6F), but can go down as cold as -35C (-31F) for a few weeks at a time. We'll get the odd storm every few years that drops a foot or two of snow at once, and then that snow blows into massive drifts.

    I'm not sure your like to get into a "most snow" contest with this location. We would call 2ft a bad, bad drought..... For contrast, we have received 48" in 48 hours. I'll post a few more photos when time allows...

    That's okay. I'll stick with our 'extreme' cold, which I guarantee you'll never beat!

    Its very likely you'd win a "cold" contest since a little lake and its warm water, keeps us warmer over the winter months. Its common to have 15 degree difference between the north and south shore then. My spouse is from northern Minnesota so cooler temps, we're familiar with :).

    I'll add a few work and home photos.

    2007 Tacoma 4.2 V6. It gets the job done for my little PUP. Sometimes I wished I had a little bit bigger TV.
