Vintage tow wannabe!

My husband & I bought a 1968 Cougar a couple months ago. He's not a believer in small tow vehicles (even after much whining & talks about/with Andy the small tow vehicle guru!). But wouldn't it be a sweet set-up?!!!Click image for larger version

My DH doesn't think it would be good for the car......I also think there are insurance issues with vintage tow vehicles & vintage trailers. I, on the other hand, would love to tow with it! It has a 390 engine!

You have the engine....but in spite of the short Airstream get a WDH hitch with sway control set-up. Anything towed with any tow vehicle has the potential to take control of your tow vehicle. The Cougar will tow your small Airstream just travel safe. There is a special feeling towing vintage with classic.
