    I suggest you paint over the Doritos logo with "free candy". Then go buy the loudest generator you can find and park it next to FO$. Just make sure you run the gen all night.

    I used to run a Nissan Navarra/Frontier double cab diesel (2.5 litre turbo diesel making all of 130 bhp, before being chipped to the outrageous level of 165 bhp ☺️), with a little 3/4 ton capacity 3 bike trailer.

    Despite the engine, the Nissan pulled it great, hauling our RSV and FZ1 to the Nurburgring many times, at 80mph and nearly 40 mpg (on the German Autobahn's). But, most of the time, it just carried our little off-roaders to the local practice tracks (so barely 300kg, or 660lbs of cargo).

    Now, the trailer is hitched to our family Volvo V70 - it's 240 bhp and 500 Nm of torque make hauling the little trailer & its normal max 1/2 tonne load basically un-noticeable.



    Cheers,

    My setup..

    2004 Avalanche 2500 8.1L (496 cubes for the metric-impared). Tows great if you ignore the single-digit fuel mileage. (8-9). 120k miles and still pulling strong. Tuned to 300rwhp/400wtq.
    Car-Mate 7x16 (+6" extra height) trailer. I also live out of it at the track, with an air mattress, fridge, and you can see the RV A/C on the roof.

    My setup. Not perfected yet, but it gets the job done.
    I find tinsel very distracting.

    I have seen more than a couple of WRX pulling trailers. They must work well. Saw a guy pulling two bikes from Canada and back with an WRX STi.

    does really good! a wrx with turbo upgrade makes 300+ft lbs of torque and hp pretty much as soon as the turbo spools so around 3-4k rpms you got alot of power down low to work with. and adding a load to it only makes that turbo spool faster.

    I usually use my 21' trailer as it will tow up to six bikes and I (will shortly) have four racing bikes just myself. However I also use my camper/toyhauler more often these days as I have people staying at my camp site at the track. It will hold four bikes. I use a combination of Pitbull Restraints and Baxley chocks. Both pictured.

    I'm now towing with a 2016 Silverado 2500HD LTZ-Plus with Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel and Allison transmission. Loving it.
