New (used) Vehicle

We were worried about towing the 19RD into the mountains with our 2008 Nissan Pathfinder (tow rating is 6000, gross trailer weight is 6000) so we traded it in for a 2007 Chrysler Aspen 5.7L Hemi V8 (tow rating is 8750) so now we feel much more confident!

Congrats. Funny how many folks, including myself, wind up going to a larger TV over time.

I had an 07 Durango. Basically the same. Great power. Rode good with lots of room and comfort. Power to spare. It LOVED gas. Had to trade it when gas hit 4 bucks a gallon. I still miss it. If you can feed it, it's a great vehicle.
