I bet I could bolt the hitch right onto the deck lid, I'm sure she won't mind.

I know what you mean. Couldn't believe it cost us $150 round trip to go 3 hrs away from the house. That is with filling up in PA where gas is cheaper than wonderful NY. I keep saying gas prices aren't going to change my camping but now I'm not sure.

How about a simple hitch on the roof.......if it can be done with a Volkswagen Bug, I don't see why it couldn't be done with a Camaro ??

I've seen the VW video before, it's truly a classic, better yet, it seems to handle the load rather well..... LMAO

Fuel costs will cut into my budget, but it won't stop me, I will just have to plan ahead and the distance travelled will probably change. However this summer we have our plans in place and I will just buck it up for our 2000 mile trip, over 50% of my budget is fuel
