What's wrong with that?

If the hitch fits on the ball, it's OK, right?

It's crazy what people do. I want to go from a 3500 srw to a drw set up for additional safety and that fool is pulling a comparable sized boat with the equivalent to a 1/2 ton.

Scary stuff!!!

Its not that bad towing with a small SUV,On mine the all time 4wheel drive does help at the ramp,the worst part was drilling out the hitch for the 2 5/16 ball with the 1 1/4 shank

I do have to watch the tounge weight,if I load to much stuff in the tool boxes on the trailer, it makes it a little hairy when I get up to 70mph on long trips

Do you have to change into a skirt when you drive that Honda?
