Tow Capacity of a 2016 BMW X3 x28i and possible Coachmen Apex 15T

www.reddit.com

Morning, So I am looking for any guides, or guidance on the realistic towing capacity of my car. The internet tells me its 3500lbs.

I am open to ideas but so far I like the Coachmen Apex 15T, its very light for dry weight which makes me feel better about loading some stuff up. We are a young family of four, kids are only 3 and under 12 months so the bunks will come in handy. My cargo capacity for the car is 906 pounds, which to me seems […]

In fact, between 1.4 million and 2.1 million U.S. small businesses could close permanently as a result of the first four months of the pandemic alone.

How to Host Video Chats Inside ‘Fortnite’

lifehacker.com

Photo: Jennie Book (Shutterstock) As I often say, I’m the world’s worst Fortnite player. Unless I can catch someone standing still for an extended period of time and snipe them from an ungodly distance, I take shotguns to the face and build about as well as a three-year old. However, Fortnite is more than just running-and-gunning; there’s a big social component to the game, too, and that’s even more apparent now that you can have full-on video chats within the game itself.

I long for the day that my […]

skillet.lifehacker.com

This is all to say I may not be the target audience for Tasty’s warm smoothies , though I’m honestly not sure that drinkers of cold smoothies are the audience, either.

Not only do I not understand what type of person would enjoy warm smoothies, I do […]

www.yoursun.com

Lucille at the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument The year 2020 will be remembered for many things. The year we closed schools and businesses to study and work from home. The year we canceled vacations. The year we stayed home.
