    Thank you Carl. That helps. I have been a camper since about 88 or 89, i forget when we bought our first one, a class C Honey. ButI towed a 82 S10 back then with a standard towbar that can be bought anywhere, it worked well on some long trips, alsI pulled my daughters S1- from here in Virginia to Ocala Florida with it, no issues. anyway, I just sold a 98 S10 that had 5 speed manual that I had already put brackets on to tow but, had a lot of clutch issues and a few other things so I got rid of it, but, in seeing some Equinox being towed recently, I thought I would ask a few of you about it, and there you were, a perfect guy to ask..LOL Thanks for your reply, I will be out looking for a good used one to tow, I'm retired now and don't get too excited anymore wanting to spend money on new cars... anyway, thanks a lot..!

    I like your idea of the Equinox..I have been looking at them to use as a toad...can you tell me anything about dealers part of prepping it or is it all in the guide that comes with it. Also, is there a specific model number for the blue ox tow system. I have an older cheapie tow bar sorta like the ones Harbor Freight sells. I used it on several trips pulling an S10 pickup. No issues with it. pulled from virginia to Ohio and Pigeon Forge. also to Myrtle Beach. I pulled my daughters S10 down to Ocala, Fla with it a few years ago, never had any issues with it. We had a 06 Jeep for awhile and pulled it to Myrtle Beach once. I really didn't like the jeep at all, it had them famous wobbles that some get at 45 to 50 mph. it was scary. so. I sold my s10 and I'm looking for something new. or used.
