Now we have really got off topic but I gotta say it better than
Here - I will pull it right back to the topic...
When I was kid, we pulled our Starcraft Pop-up through South Dakota to Mount Rushmore. Stayed for several days in Custer state park. We pulled with a 1980 Buick Park Estate station wagon with the 350 X code engine. We stopped and did the 1880 train. when we came out, someone had thoughtfully applied, at cocky angle no less, an 1880 train bumper sticker to the front bumper of the mighty Buick. We toed that camper all over, down to Florida etc., all with the 1880 Train which is what the mighty Buick came to be known as.
As for towing, that Buick did one heck of a job. At the time Oldsmobile offered a version with a diesel engine, and was total crap. So if looking at 1980 model year GM station wagons, I heartily suggest getting the gas engine.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
