Please feel free to post here. We would all like to hear your stories.

PS; I come to Sequim just about every year to see my dad. His birthday is in July. He'll be 95 this year.
Mike - If you get to Sequim - I can recomend the Rainbows inn rv park. It's about 3 miles from my place - give me a call!
Also Sequim Bay state park and the Dungeness Rec area all nice. Best Wishes - Ralph

Heres a picture of my 70 vw truck with 74 perris pacer in tow

I have the original owners manual and it says that the towing capacity for a 1970 truck is 1000 pounds. not sure what the bug would be but it seems if the truck is 1000 the bug should be less but maybe not. The payload is listed and 2200, also I have a larger engine and dual cabs so I figure it should handle towing more than that.

Nice looking set! I don't think our '68 single cab will ever pull our UHaul. Just too much weight to do more than drive it down a short, FLAT road to a nearby VW show. For shows, we could pull the UHaul with our 2003 VW Eurovan (our normal tow vehicle), drive the single cab by itself, and then just hook them together at the show.
