Well the Rover is out and the CTS is here! One owner, 05 with only 50k miles on it. Just ordered a hitch this morning, I'll post up some pics of it pulling once I get everything set up. With 255hp/tq and a 3600+ curb weigth I am sure it'll pull my littler 18 footer just fine
My dad used to pull this same boat with both C4 and C5 Corvettes back in the day

The CTS actually tows my boat pretty well!

I remember back in the 60`s/70`s most all camping trailers were pulled by the family station wagon like the pic posted earlier. All the big wagon makers offered a towing package and they had big blocks in them. The trailers wern`t nearly as large as they are now but that`s just how it was.
My family has been boating/camping sence before i was born in 1953 and they never had a truck. We even towed behing something called a Hillman. It was a little 4 cylinder car and our boat was a 1960 Arkansas Travler. It looked weird but got the job done.

the hillman hunter, was a very successful rally racing car back in the days before awd. our neighbors had a book about them when i was a kid in the late 70's/early 80's. looks like it would be a fun car today.

Yeah, I once pulled a 24' IMP with a 1980 Toyota Corolla. Brakes? What brakes?
