last year I towed an Edge with my 2010 Melbourne - had no problems and didn't experience a noticeable drop in mileage. Now I tow a Jeep.

I should have added this to my posting on the Edge. I got a Patriot brake controller for the Edge. Because od the softness in the front of the seats sometimes it took a long time to get all green lights on the controller. I solved this problem by placing a board between the driver's seat and the brake unit. It made for a more positive set up and faster set up time.
