    Looks like the boat is distributed real nice across the trailer -thus all 4 wheels making ground contact. Any vehicle can get a boat rolling.........but being in control?????

    I think he's looking to add another yellow skid mark down the side!

    Other than making for a real nice picture, the Hummer should stay in the driveway. If he has to stop fast, that Cig is gonna make that Hummer into a speed bump.

    I think the wheel base on that truck is too small to be handling that boat!!! If he's planning on driving it around the block...then go for it. It does kinda look cool. Anything other then way i would try it!

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!

    Now I don't feel so bad. You see I just bought and H-2 as well and I was hoping I could pull my 36 spectre with it. 7200lbs +trailer(1800lbs) for a total weight of around 9000lbs. I was a little worried about the 6500lb tow rating.

    My Expidition 235 hp 2wd air/susp pulls the package easily at 65+ mph

    The Hummer has 316 hp. w/air susp and 4wheel drive

    Do you think I should be concerned?

    my trailer is a triple axle w/brakes

    And here I thought you were bragging

    I think you're insurance company will be real happy when they don't have to pay the claim. Let's say you get in a wreck - they can deny your claim due to "reckless operation" since you are WAY over the tow rating on that vehicle.

    Maybe I'm just a bit risk-adverse, but trailing a big ticket boat, with no insurance, using a vehicle that is not up to the job, just makes me a wee bit nervous.... Not to mention what happens if you injure or (God forbid) kill someone else in a wreck - can you say "lawsuit"?

    I guess I don't understand how someone (general statement, not picking on Jeffery's partner or Maximus specifically) can drop hundreds of thousands of dollars on a boat, another 10 or 15 on a nice trailer, but puts the whole rig at risk by not spending 35 or 40K on a truck equipped to handle the load.

    For a 42' boat on that trailer, he should be looking at a one ton truck, minimum. If it were me, I'd be looking into an F-450 or 550 for a little extra capacity (and peace of mind).

    As always, YMMV...

    Hey Jeffrey-

    You should tell Jim that he might as well have gone for the Mercedes A-Class with a lift kit. I'm sure that is available in yellow too.........I mean that is why he got the H2 to pull the Tiger right? I think this thread is about 1 week too late.

    Bet the tranny takes a **** before the brakes. Can you get an Allison in one of those? What kind of interior is in those new hummers? I thought it was hard getting in & out of a C3 Corvette until I got in a big Hummer.

    I think he should give me the Tiger so I can tow it with my F350 ! Ton !!!! I hear the H2 is nothing more than a Tahoe with square body panels? I'm curious because the wife wants one. As for me, I will stay with my F350. Wardey
