You didn't say if you were looking at vintage or new. I would agree with 2air that you tow vehicle would work better with a vintage unit, probably a 1970's model. The inside height is not much different than the new ones. They are only 8 feet wide however. If you go farther back, say the 1960's or 1950's you will find that the inside and width are narrower. My 1954 29' Liner is only 7 feet wide and you would be in a constant crouch inside. I have no problem towing either of my trailers with the Lincoln and the PowerWagon. Vintage is lighter and sometimes smaller.

No way, no how. Sorry. I had a Tahoe, 350 with tow package. Towed a 25' Safari. No way, no how. Bought a new transmission for the next owner. No way, no how. No matter what.

Trade it while you can.

Thumbs up 3/4

[quote=klattu]Trade it for a 3/4 ton[/quote


I'm a die hard Burber myself, but I really don't think that the 1500 is up to

the task. It would do the job, but just barely. 2500 series would be a

much better choice.

Better to have more than you need, than need more than you got!!!
