Smile poll #2- Style of your tow vehicle-pls repoll

I screwed up on the 1st one and thanks to Peter, we have another chance of getting a better picture.

So if you all would be kind enough to poll your main style of tow vehicle, we would all be thankful!

John

p.s. I noticed that the 1st poll was getting more invloved with makes than style.

Thanks for the change

I thought that about the first poll, but I didn't want to say anything. The brand mix is available on one of your previous polls.

I think this choice of items gives a lot better picture of what folks are actually using out there.

Looking for more!

Jason,

Are you out looking for some more Airstreams?

Man it's cold for us down here, but our good friends up north would love mid-20's right now!!

Good luck on your search-John

Texas. too!

We had 87 degrees on Tuesday. Tonight is to be in the teens. even at that, the weather guessers say the main bullet missed us because the jet stream pushed it to the east.

Our situation tomorrow is that the clouds are being pinned in here and will prevent us getting any great amount of solar heating tomorrow. The only good of the clouds is that they will keep tomorrow night reasonably warm. Sunday will be a lot warmer yrt and Monday will be clear and back in the 60s.

The peach growers around here love this. It is giving them the chilling hours that they need to set a big crop.

John,
I will post photo's as I go along.
The ambulance body, took some removing, I have donated it to the guy who helped me, he's going to use it as a workshop, with lockers to store his tools.
I could not have done it without him, so where both happy.

Wow

It's pretty close between pickup's and large SUV's. I thought pickup's were going to really out number the rest.

Learn something new everyday !

John

SUV vs Pickup

I think if all the members of WBCCI would vote, large SUVs would rule. By and large though, these folks do not participate in the forums. Pickups are more numerous among the younger owners that do participate in the forums and that probably skews the vote.

Question towing vehicle

Pulling a '70 23' Land Yacht. Right now I use a 3/4 ton chevy ext cab. I have used a dodge dakota club cab with a 318cc in it, without problems. Also pulled with a dodge 1/2 ton ext cab and chevy suburban with a 350cc. So far the best puller is the current 3/4 ton with the 410 rear end. The problem is the price of gas right now in Texas averages 1.75 per gallon. I would like to look at getting a vintage expedition type vehicle to pull the trailer and have enough room for passangers. I was looking all the way from a 1970 Bronco to a 1975 Series III Land Rover. The problem I guess I would have is length. Any suggestions?
