I can't answer your question. The only evidence I have to offer is this picture of a Rampside with a tow hitch attached. I took this picture this past weekend at a Corvair gathering here in Taos. Before that, I didn't know these things ever existed.

I would think the hardest part of towing with one of these would be getting one to begin with. They must be very rare.

Adrian, I really enjoyed Jay Leno's site. He has an amazing collection.

I would think with the rear engine that a trailer would really impact the steering. That was a great video.
