Still looking at transportation

I have been looking for a new vehicle to replace both the Van and the Buick. Just one to be a road car and to haul that 18 ft trailer. I think I have found it. The pictures show a 2011 Prius with a 2 inch hitch receiver. Perfect. Good MPG and at low speeds it's battery powered. I can cruise along with the trailer behind and look down (up) on other drivers. I just wish it were a plug in electric that way I could drive it really slow from Austin to the bunker and plug it in at each motel and use their electricity. Hauling the trailer it would only take five weeks to get to Ozona (half way) and 55 miles of extension cord.
