Check out the Gladiators in Havasu thread in the Cig forum . I page one I think.

We had no problems towing. The pic you see with the Hummer and the back end a little low. That problem was solved by putting in air bags after that picture was taken.

The towing capacity I think is 6-7k. I'm not sure how much the boat and the trailer for you are going to weigh... (I'm not gonna say how much the Glad and the trailer weigh) but I will tell you that getting electric brakes on the trailer are a must.

It's late I'm tired I hope this make sense in the morning.... I will post the link to the thread I mentioned above. Gimme a sec

Thanks guy's. I bought an H-2 tonight and like it. I am going to try to toe with it in the next few week ends. If it goes OK, I will sell my F-250 and just have one toe vehicle. Anymore comments are always welcome.

IMO, The wheelbase is a little short on an H-2 to tow something that big,. Might me good for moving it around town, but I dont think id wanna get up to any kind of speed with it.

I have an H2 and would not even attempt to pull my boat (9200 lbs dry)with it. It does not even like hauling my two Seadoo's that weight around 900 lbs each. Wheelbase short and tranny struggles on hills. Tow with the big truck and keep the Hummer for pleasure.

I have the H1 Diesel and it works well for short distances with my 38' fountain. It handles better than anything else I have tried to towed it with and it takes the turns well. The H1 over the H2 for handling. Sounds like a road trip is needed..
