It's listed weight is 1200 pounds, and I easily had 1500 with the spare tire, jack, clothes, food, beer etc in it. So this is Colorado and I went over a 12,000 foot pass (Monark Pass) from Denver to Blue Mesa lake. The Cross Trek did awesome the whole trip, up and down mountains, no sway or breaking issues, and could pass other cars struggling up passes. The Cross Trek slowed to about 45 miles per hour on the steepest part for about 10 minutes at the top of this 12,000 foot pass. I could have ramped it up more, but chose not to push it past 4,000 rpms for this trip. But get this: average MPG for my trip? 45!!!! It seems with the continuous variable transmission it is highly efficient...which I've also found to be true when not in traffic...if you nurse the gas peddle, I can get up to 50 mpg. With traffic it drops to 32 or less around town in stop and go lights etc. I used a Curtis hitch. Loving the CrossTrek!!!
    Wow glad to hear I'm getting a livinlite quicksilver trailer that weighs 1080 lbs and about 150-200 lbs of gear in and on the trailer I was worried at 1300 lbs but now not so much. Do you have trailer brakes? Mine will so stopping won't be an issue I was worried about hills as I go over the sierras twice a year @7200 feet thanks again for your post mike

    Got a question. Does anyone change your fuel for towing trailers? Going premium help the little engine out?
