Default How much do you tow in a year?

I was sitting here thinking about the miles I put on every year towing with various trucks and I think that half of my miles driven are with a trailer of some sort.

In a given year I would guess that I tow around 6000 miles. Most of this is at work in the winter where I average 300-400 miles a week in the peak season.

My personal record is ~25,000miles of towing in one year.

I tow on average 200 miles per weekend late march through october.

Now that I have a jeep again I am sure I will add a few towing miles during the non boating season.

So in average somewhere around 5000 miles a year maybe.

I probably put on about 1500-2000k last year towing the camper with the Suburban. Getting a whopping 7.5mpg the whole time.
