A little reminder

Do not, repeat, do not attempt to tow with this kind of hood ornament. This pic also may belong in the "what should I have packed?" category...cow repellent!

I'll laugh. I had my day. Towing my Honda Fit toad behind my Airstream Inerstate, crossing the bridge between Natchez, MS and Vidalia, LA. One lane of the bridge closed for construction. Ran over some road debris (no room to swerve around it) and got a flat on the right rear of my Honda.

As soon as we cleared the bridge, the guy behind me flagged me down and told me about the flat. I changed it right then and there, and completed the rest of the trip at a pokey 50mph, which was what my Honda owner's manual said was the maximum driving speed for using a donut spare, so I figured that was my maximum towing speed with a donut spare, too. The flat tire was completely ruined, but the rim was fine.

Yep! On our second trip with our Airstream trailer, we had a blowout. Fortunately, we heard it, and then I was able to see it in the mirror (it was street side). The trailer towed normally; if we hadn't heard the noise, I'm not sure how long we would have gone before I saw it in the mirror. I'm not going to laugh at anyone going through that.

Now, in the motorhome video, I thought he was warned and kept going, which is a different situation. I'll laugh at someone who ignores a warning like that.
