my Xterra works well with the Elise since the Elise only weighs 400 lbs more than the trailer.

Fast in, fast out.

Finally also member of the club. Earlier this month I finished, "Operation LOTOW":

Part 1 was to make room:
Part 2 was to get a vehicle that the wife could drive daily that got ok MPG, wouldn't destroy the bank, was somewhat utilitarian, and COULD tow.
Part 3 was finally finished earlier this month - took delivery of the trailer.

I am very pleased, the 2012 Ford Edge tows the Exige/aluminum trailer combo like a champ!

I am not a fan of the bling wheels but it is what it is...

EDIT: It gets 14-16mpg avg towing trailer, Lotus, and gear.
