Hi Kevin,

This hitch diagram is really similar to one that I had custom fabricated in order to haul my 72 Triumph Tiger suspended 3 feet from the ground and flush to the back of my old Ford Econoline Van during a move from Philly to Nashville back in 2009.

I'm going to take a close look at this. I really appreciate the info! I'm also going to print these threads out and take them to a vintage car club meeting that's taking place in town a few weeks from now and open this up for a discussion there. Your info is informative and realistic. If you think of anything else, just keep it coming!

As someone said earlier, THE man to talk to about tow vehicles is Andy Thompson @ CanAm in Toronto. He writes a monthly column in Airstream Life on all there is to know about towing. He specializes in matching trailer to TV-- and unconventional TVs like cars & minivans, too! If we had known this sooner, we might have driven up from Louisiana & let him do his magic BEFORE buying our 2012 International 25. As it happened, we bought a 2012 Tundra Crew Max (our first pickup ever), THEN drove it to Oregon to pick up our AS. Trucks with a tonneau or cap do have advantages in being able to store generators, BBQs, gas cans, and other things with vapors outside of the passenger compartment.

Bottom line: Anything you end up with is a trade-off! There is no ONE grand solution. Just keep doing your homework, then jump!

Truer words were never spoken.
