- 2007 Prius
We own 2 prius have owned 3 sold one. 2007 new $21K now has 135K miles on it. We did replace both 12V and hybrid batteries I don't drive the car enough to warrant owning a hybrid. But I have converted it to a camper car. Took out the passenger seat and the 60% of the rear seat added a trailer hitch and I can tow a RUNAWAY CAMPER with the car. I get 30 MPG at 60 mph go slower mileage increases.
We have owned a 2005 we bought for $6K we replaced all the speakers and upgraded the car stereo some $800 we had a lot of work done to the front end $2K drove the car till it hit 225K miles sold it for $1.5K to get rid of it. 2 problems with it a censor that would turn off the light when below 40 degrees so we inspected the car when cold problem solved did that for years. The cruise control went out so we used it for in town use only. Car drove like new just those 2 issues that and dirty seats but I could have cleaned them.
We bought a used 2012 Prius V had 60 K miles on it and we paid $12K for it. The car is well on it's way to 100K miles. Only reason we dropped the 05 gen 2 was our daughter started driving and I am not riding in the back of a gen 2.
IT IS MY WISH SOMEBODY WOULD DEVELOP A POP UP SOLAR PANELED TOPPER FOR THE V that attached to a trailer hitch, take out the rear seats and convert that area to sleeping zone that or add a rear attachment and take the rear hatch off the car. A PRIUS CAMPER that gets same economy as the regular Prius but has the ability to stand in it. I want to put a trailer hitch on the car and have another device designed for the car that would carry dirty clothes ,porta potty ,extra fuel can, and other things that makes too much noise to be in the cabin like ice chest, nothing sucks worse than a wet ice chest sloshing every little bump. I would develop this rear end so it would fit PRIUS V with rear end damage cars that are totaled out with low miles that are bought for a song. This way the rear end is placed on the car covers most of the rear end and a damaged rear end can be lobbed off and this fit to the car. If done right the entire thing will fit the car the hack can even contain a shower if you wish. I would get copper tubing and coil it around the exhaust then I would have 2 water tanks to provide the hot water. I would have a pump send the water through the coil to keep the water hot for the cost of the pump.
