flat towing a Sami
Whoa! I just checked Mapquest and I'm floored!(I guess I should have done that before huh?). It's almost a 700 mile trip one way! There's no way I'm gonna survive a trip that far in a Sami.. I guess I'm going to have to rent a truck and tow out or skip going out all together.
If I go I'm left with a couple of questions...
1.) Will a Ford Ranger (4cyl I believe) be enough car to flat tow a Sami this distance?
2.) How easy or difficult is it to hook a towbar up to a Sami. with a stock front bumper?
3.) What do I need to do to prep this for the ride?
4.) I've never driven a tow vehicle carrying anything more than a jetski. What should I do to insure a safe drive out?
5.) Should I rent a Ranger from Budget to tow this? I can get away with a Ranger from there and a towbar from another place but I don't think I can do a Ranger and a tow dolly with the Ranger because there will be no trailer lights...
I'm going to have to seriously reconsider this trip. I haven't had my Sami long enough to feel comfortable enough to drive it that far...
Life sucks sometimes...
