Towing with a 78 Scout

I am thinking of getting a 78 Scout with a v8. Will it
haul my 27' Airstream trailer?

Re: Towing with a 78 Scout

It would probably pull it without any problems. However, my Scout has enough problems staying on the road by itself, muchless with a 27' trailer trying to push it around.

I would suggest that you find a pickup if you want to be safer. For towing heavy objects, longer and heavier is usually better.
