Off shore towing with smallish sedans and wagons with 4 to 8 cyl vehicles is very popular. Considering some are towing non aerodynamic TT's, upwards of 3,000+ lbs without a WDH is admirable. Saab's, BMW's, Volvo's, Nissan's, Honda's, Subaru's, Mercedes, etc., are popular. The tight suspension, low centre of gravilty, aerodynamics, and sticky low profile tires all work together to make it possible.


Good day Rednax... It is common to use and see modern sedans and some wagons towing in these parts. I have seen both the 300C, Crown Vic, and others towing Airstreams. Many are 6 cyl. Considering the power to weight ratio and the aerodynamic advantage many 6 cyl cars are as good or better than many of the larger, bulky V8 vehicles.

Airstreams..... The best towing trailers on the planet!
