I tried to rent a car dolly from U-Haul to pull a 90's something Chevy Corsica, and according to their computer, the weight of the car and car dolly is NOT recommended for safe towing behind my 01 Ranger w/ 3.0L.
I'd need a full-size truck to pull anything with the car dolly......according to them.
I guess on their computer software there's a safety weight requirement.........makes sense, but it's not correct.
I just ended up having my buddy drive the car as fas as it could go, then used a tow rope to get it to it's final destination. It was going to the metal scrapers and it had a blown rad.....so the 35km (22 miles) distance was no match for a coolentless car in July.
I've pulled a 2000 lb air compressor around for work before, and besides it being a bit tricky to stop downhill on wet pavement, it pulls it without hesitation. Been doing that for the past 4 years now. You can sure feel 2000 lbs back there when you start off, but at cruising speed, it just coasts along.
Don't know where exactly I was going with that....just thought I'd rant on U-Haul. LOL
