We now pull it with a 2012 Kia Sedona minivan. Just finished a 1,000 mile RT it it tows great. Used to pull with an F150. The Kia is way more comfortable and our old dog loves the increase in room, plus in really cold or bad weather we can now use the minivan as a "living room" by only using the rear bench seat.

Right now an 04 Chevy HD2500 crew cab 4x4

After I am finished fixing up the teardrop, I'll be restoring my old 75 MG Midget. It does have a 1300 lb towing capacity, so I may put it to work. Here is what it looked like 30 years ago.

We just picked up our 5X8 Hiker Trailer on Thursday. We pull it with a 2017 Toyota 4Runner.

Still waiting and dreaming of getting a 4wd, so I can go off the highway a few times before I'm too worn down (at 67, I feel like it's already happened). I have two 2wd trucks, my '04 Chevy single cab 2500HD (capable, but not 4wd), and a beefed-up '98 GMC Sierra extended cab (heavy duty engine, tranny, springs, for towing use, but alas, no 4wd). We have two front-wheel drivers, a HHR Panel, and a Cobalt, but neither can tow my 2020 lb TTT squareback, nor would be good off-road. My wife says that I need to get rid of one or more vehicles, before I get the 4wd (but all have their uses!); that leaves my '66 Chevelle drag car, which has been sitting almost 9.5 years. I no longer race, nor wish to part-out my old friend (from '94-'08, I spent 90% of my spare time and money on it, with other cars/trucks interspersed), so I've been trying to sell/trade it to a person that won't part it out, or scrap it, and will either use it for street or 'strip use, as it should be. I believe that this car deserves to live again, so I've been trying to persuade a friend/neighbor to take it over, for a moderately capable, used 4wd SUV in trade,though the value of the Chevelle's parts is thrice what I may receive back (he has an X5 project car, he was restoring to eventually replace his Subaru), or he has an inside line to some Jeeps. In any case, until I find a good home for my Chevelle, I'll be towing it via 2 wheel-drive.
