Re: Favorite old towing vehicles?
I had a Skipjack 20 fishing boat, total trailer & boat weight about 5,500 lbs, IIRC. Had a Ford F-250 super cab, 4 speed manual gear box with super low first gear & posi traction differential. Never had any trouble getting off the ramp, even at low tide. Pulled it once with my full size Detroit iron sedan, for a short distance, big mistake, lucky to make it home.
As mentioned earlier, if you are going to tow very much, bigger is better.
