Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

how long a trailer can I safely tow?

I recently bought a 2007 Pathfinder SE specifically with the intention of towing a travel trailer, which I haven't bought yet. So I have read to tow safely that one should limit it to 20 feet of trailer for 110" of wheel base, and add 1 foot of trailer for every 4" more wheelbase. The PF has 112" wheelbase, so that would mean 20'6" trailer max. Are they including the hitch length in these numbers? I read that some of you are towing 24' trailers with pathfinders, does that include hitch length or not? Looking forward to any advice!

    I've seen that general rule of thumb as well. I assume that hitch length is included since we're simply talking about overall length. Might be a silly idea, but as an illustration, picture a trailer where the body/bed of the trailer is only 5 feet long, but the tongue is 15' long. Still a 20' long object being towed.
