My Vehicle: 2014 XV Crosstrek Premium (red)
Default West Virginia

If anyone sees a Red Crosstrek in West Virginia, it is most likely me... If you see it with WV plates pulling a black/silver Silver Shadow teardrop trailer, wave. IT will be me.

I saw a silver XV on HWY 68 yesterday heading into Maryland. Hi!

I picked up the trailer at http://www.beckleysrvs.com/ , great people, prices, and service!

So, yeah.. Having a blast driving El Rojo everywhere. Bought him with 25 miles on him Wednesday, now have him at 759 miles on the odom. LOL.. Car is great fun to drive. I was so worried towing the trailer up some of these hills, it revved up near 7 grand a few times... That CVT strains, but I found that since I was doing 70mph, it will rev pretty high, BUT! When I lessened my speed to around 60mph, it will stay down under 4000rpm and won't hurt the vehicle.

All the talk about people have a high CVT whine, well I am thinking that they have a pretty heavy lead foot. I am thinking that the XV loves a sweet spot of ~67mph.

What kind of gas mileage are you getting pulling the teardrop?

Drove 240 miles, 1/2 leg was pulling the trailer.. Was a lot of steep hills on Hwy 68 between Morgantown and Hagerstown, and I went through a complete tank of gas. Ran on fumes to find a station. I now have 700 miles on my vehicle. =)

Gas wan't great, but that could have been my fault. I kept the cruise control at 70, and it redlined quickly going up some steep grades. When I dropped my speed to about 55/60, it went under 4 grand, but still... I wasted a lot of fuel.

Thanks for the praise...

OKAY! Ther is another Red Crosstrek just like mine here in Buckhannon. It is a few months older than mine though.. Who are you? I saw you parked at CVS the other night.

I put Duragloss on the vehicle, as well as an invisible bra on the front edge of the hood, ro protect from chips and scratches. Also ended up getting the aftermarket version of the body side molding and door edge guards. Here in the DC metro area, people are inconsiderate assholes when it comes to scratching/denting cars of other people. They couldn't take responsibility for their actions and mistakes if their lives depended on it. If your scratches aren't too bad, it might not hurt to pick up some Duragloss and put a layer or two on. It won't completely prevent scratches, but it'll reduce the number/likelihood of scratches, and it's relatively cheap and very easy to apply. If your scratches are too bad though, might wanna have the vehicle detailed and paint-corrected first though, I'd think.
