The truck usually stayed in Calif when we leave for the summer.
My room mate would tow his Honda behind the motor-home.
Which is set up for towing. My truck is not.
However next year we will need something to haul things from Low's & Home Depot for the house.
Lumber, gardening equipment, etc. So I'm planing to drive it to Tenn.
