Default Re: Tow Vehicle Question

Its not the weight to be concerned with, its the wind drag. 200 miles is a pretty long haul with those gears. Add a tranny cooler and keep it out of over drive. The problem with having a half ton tow vehicle is not if it can do it. It will tow the boat just fine. The speed at which you will be able to tow is the problem. If the speed limit is 70, everyone else is going 80 and you're on the verge of causing an accident at 55. I would look for a vehilce with lower gears.
