Just got back from a 4 day trip to the Hill Country of Texas with the 05 SSR pulling a enclosed motorcycle trailer. It was an 850 mile round trip with an average of 15 MPG. Total weight of the trailer and bike was around 2000 pounds. By not using the cruise control I could maintain highway speeds with very little down shifting. The trailer does have electric brakes which helped for smooth stoping. Was a great trip and the package peformed quite will.
