I bought my Ecodiesel to pull my travel trailer. I pulled my trailer with my 2500 Hemi before and have not tried it with my 2015 yet. Curious how everyone is finding the towing capability of the Ecodiesel.

Tow a lot with mine. Towing tomorrow with a third trailer to Georgia. None are large tows. That toy hauler had Harley's in it on a run to Pennsylvania from Florida this past Summer. It's been towed multiple times.

This EcoD is not my old Cummins 2500. It is what it is and that's been fine for me the past 34,000 miles.

I have towed my tandem axle flat trailer with lumber on it and was pleased. Tomorrow I am moving an adult horse with it and also plan to pull the 29' camper soon. So far I am pleased with the truck and can't help but smile when the adverage MPG keeps climbing. On my home turf 20+ adverage is so great, my old truck got 12 downhill with a tail wind.

Overall averages of about 20 are what I'm seeing lately as well but that's with heavy idling in the cold climate here not sure of your situation.

Wintertime I don't tow much. Maybe a trailer full here and there of miscellaneous crap. This spring I have a big patio to build so it'll get some good work in then. But the other 3 seasons I drag this light setup around.

It can't weigh more than 3500#. It's hardly noticeable to pull. Might have it next season at most, then it's sold to my buddy. Plan on a camper soon.

Not exactly the heaviest load but.......
Hey I hate to break it to you but I hope that rzr's on the trailer to the dealer to get the recall work done before it Burns up! I guess we had an oops up here making them for a few years.

Recalls happen. What has really irked me is the way Polaris is handling it. This is the last Polaris product I purchase.

How is Polaris handling it? Sorry I don't know the owner aspect of it. I'm just a grunt in their manufacturing facility up here
