The tow went surprising well. We have 3 vehicles--my aging Neon, with 143k, an 08 Corolla without hitch, and a 95 Ranger with hitch but also with some wheel-bearing issues.
So we took the Neon. With the 5-spd, we just down-shifted as needed on grades, and it worked ok. Felt very stable... we could feel a change in the wind-pressure or whatever when a big-rig sailed by, but it was simply noticeable--it didn't feel like some big push wanting to de-rail us. And I could sure feel the wind-resistance of the upright camper behind a small, low, light
car. Still, got 30mpg or so. [versus 38mpg on the way out
] So--about a 650 mile tow, with the least well-suited TV in the local fleet, and it still towed well.
By summer, I'll figure to put a hitch on the Corolla--as well as a transmission cooler with fan to safeguard its automatic trans. And I reckon that will pull the UHaul
more steadily, with its somewhat bigger size and weight
. [Plus--the Corolla has AC!!
