How big is your boat?Ken S said:I need a 4WD vehicle for towing a boat and riding the sand (surf fishing).
It's a 21-foot Grady White. Not likely that a Camry or Prius would tow it safely.n8kwx said:How big is your boat?Ken S said:I need a 4WD vehicle for towing a boat and riding the sand (surf fishing).
Check out the Escape Hybrid for running on sand. The Highlander is a limited AWD type of system. Only an electric motor powers the rears. There is no transfer case or driveshaft to the rear. The Escape is a more "traditional" setup.
My boat is a 17' sailboat. I took the boat and trailer to a truck stop (they always weigh more than advertised...) and weighed in at 720 lbs.
People have towed as much with a Prius, but I wasn't too crazy about that. The Highlander tows 3500 lbs, but it was complete overkill. The Camry was perfect. More power and weight than the Prius, and much better economy than the Highlander. Fortunately I have always found paved ramps. I have seen a few unpaved ones, but I was always able to find a paved one to the same body of water. (Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois)
I get about 27 MPG on the freeway, 30-33 on highways trailering. 40 MPG+ otherwise.
