My Saga continues: Now i've got my whole towing setup up-and-running.

Payload:
1 Aliner Alite 400 w/gear: 500lbs
1 Hobie Bravo Mono-cat sailboat 12' w/ Dolly: 300lbs
Tongue weight is 60lbs.

With the camper and the boat together, I can feel the weight, but the camper alone it's basically not back there.

With the pop-up camper alone: MPG drops from 30 avg to 28.
With the pop-up and boat: MPG drops from 30 avg to 25

All-in-all (besides the really low tow rating) i've found the Buick Envision to be a competent tow vehicle for it's intended rated weight.

I've got the FWD 2.5 non-turbo: being the lowest combination; this engine and drive combination and more than adequate for towing around town.

I'd recommend towing Pop-up campers and other small utility trailers.
