2012 V8 and U-haul Trailer

Just a brief report.

I recently moved from western Colorado to southeast Michigan. Pulled a 3000 pound trailer (trailer+load) with no problems. Up and down the mountains of Colorado, through rain and hail in Kansas the GC did great. Barely noticed the trailer was there.

I have a 2012 V8 GC with the Laredo X package. I pulled the largest U-haul trailer they rent. I was able to cruise at 75-80 mph (despite what the trailer says) with no problems. Went up the mountains at 60 mph - could have gone faster but I was being cautious. Had some moderate wind across Kansas but no issues.

Gas mileage was surprisingly good - 11 mph on average for the whole trip.
