Gosh, I think you're preparing to go waaaay over the hitch weight of your tow vehicle. But, it looks like you can lighten the load by leaving the shaving mirror at home!

That looks like a Metropolitan, do you tow a TT with slide-outs?

That little Nash, with a 1200 cc engine, is a bit light to use as a tow, isn't it?

That could have been my old 54. The car is long gone but there's still a full set of hubcaps out in the garage.

Exclamation

Reminds me of a story my cousin told me. They tow a large Jayco trailer with a Chevy Tahoe. They were staying at a campsite for a few days and thought they would take the Tahoe in for service. They took it in and got an Aveo for a loaner. So naturally they parked the Aveo in front of the Jayco. Did they get the looks from passers by! Everyone thought they had towed that Jayco with the Aveo.
