New (used) tow rig

I finally broke down and bought a new (used) tow rig to pull the 13' Scamp. It was really hard for me to go from the van being paid for, to having payments again but I knew I wanted something with a little more power for towing. I went from a 3.5 Chevy Van to a 4.2. Chevy Trailblazer. I hope that it will tow a little better. My little pooch Butch is ready to go camping!

That is what we have and fully intend to tow with. Our pop-up camper weighed 2800 pounds empty and it towed like a dream. I suspect we will not even know the egg is back there....when we get one....

I looked at your album, Mary Ann, I see you have been busy, like your floor in your Scamp and you will like the new tow. Enjoy..

With a 275hp Trailblazer you could tow two 13' Scamps and barely know they are back there- lots of power with very little tow or tongue weight:>)
