    Home from our 5,107 mile Long Haul. The Ski Lodge performed better than expected. It was an amazing adventure.

    I mentioned that I got a TRI-MAX wheel lock when I was picking up our 560 back on June 3, 2016. You said it absolutely would not work on the axles and wheels you install on your Teardroos.
    Good news Cary,,, it works perfectly ,,
    Just need to pop off the hubcap. It covers the lug nuts to prevent a potential thief from removing the tire, replacing it with another, and driving off with a new Teardrop.

    Made it home from Necedah with "The Caboose" in tow, then turned right around and visited new friends at the 2nd annual Texas gathering.

    Hello

    We have a 2016 XC70 T5 AWD that has a 3,300 towing capacity and it's 250 hp/266lb torque. We're interested in the 560 ultra which is 1500lb I believe, you're the only Volvo owner I have seen yet and wondering what you're thoughts are on using the XC70 for a tow vehicle?

    Any thoughts or experience you could share is greatly appreciated!

    Best,
    Shannon W

      Hi. We've had no towing issues with our XC90, and we have the 5 cylinder turbo. We've been assured that a 4-cyl would be fine as a tow vehicle (though perhaps not a Prius). I don't recall what the 2004 XC90 2.5T towing capacity is, but I don't think it's higher than 3,500 lbs. We have the smaller CampInn, but we have it loaded pretty heavy, I think, with kitchen stuff, plus a full water tank, usually.

    We brought her home on March 16, 2017. Now it is time to figure out bedding, how to equip the galley and packing.

      It might be a bit early for you considering your pick-up date. But it seems this will be a recurring event, so you can keep an eye out for next year if this year doesn't work out for you. Hope to see you around sometime!
