Try THIS in your Elige!!

Browsing for sports car trailers I somehow came up with this story from 2012:


Police: Man towed pickup, trailer with sports car | The Kennebec Journal, Augusta, ME


Rotary POWER + a bad idea = humor. I was surprised that he hit 35 miles/hr.

We towed a pickup loaded with motorcycles, with a trailer loaded with a sandrail, with another pickup loaded with quads, about 500 miles up I-5 once. The trick is to keep the winch line short enough that nobody will try to merge into the gap, but long enough that it doesn't look like you're severely tailgating. As long as you keep up with traffic, nobody even notices.
