    Madcow - Do you have an electric brake system on your trailer or is it the standard surge system? Do you ever tow down any grades or just around town on mostly level grades?

    A little bit of trivia - "Cigarette1" once towed his 35' Cafe Racer and trailer (13,000 lbs.) from Los Angeles to Lake Havasu behind a Ford EXPEDITION! I kid you not! Up and down the hills he went without any problem. I was very surprised!! An Expedition!! That takes some COJONES!

    By the way - for those who are curious - we purchased a new Ford F350 Extra Cab Superduty Diesel to tow Jim's Tiger. He used it to tow to Havasu a month ago. His H2 stayed in the garage!

    Just surge brakes, and EXTRA carefull. I only tow it localy. When I went to Smoke on the water this year I used my buddys dually. Only problem is the boat and trailer weighs over 16,000 lbs, so even with a 1 ton this thing is a beast to tow.

    Now here's where it's going to get good. He plans to tow his 1999 Cigarette Tiger (900SC's and Speedmaster #6 drives) on a 3500 pound Myco trailer around with this Hummer. Don't get me wrong - the Hummer is awesome and looks awesome attached to the boat and trailer (see pic). But are all of you thinking what I'm thinking?? 13,000 pounds + Hummer = HumCig mashed potatoes out in left field at the bottom of the grade?

    Just curious what the masses think ... ha ha. he's going to give me hell for this!

    Do you guys tow anything anymore?

    Hope his insurance will cover it when they find out he is towing outside of the H2 capacity.

    I believe that it sits on a chevy avalanche 3/4 ton frame that has been modified so that the axles are moved out giving it a longer wheel base. It does not matter to me what you pull with. It has alot to do with conditions, speed and common sense.

    Ummmm..... "Partner" or "Business Partner". I felt like an idiot (yes, which occures often ---- there, beat everyone to it) when I found out the "new" meaning of "Partner"!

    He may want to read his insurance policy on the boat. Mine says the tow rig must be rated to tow the weight or no coverage. Markel American insures it. Cool looking Hummer, but silly idea.

    Re: Towing with the new H2 Hummer!

    i have seen no pics of this boat in the past several years so i hope the vehicle could not pull it out of the driveway, because the alternative is that it is now described with the first word "salvage". the insurance side of the issue now days scares the crap out of me just as brad just stated. in missouri and illinois i hear they are doing roadside stops for overweight hauling. looked pretty cool though.
