Greetings! This is the first posting I have put forth and it is a question. The Olds Royale 88 Has been in our family since it was new in 1995. It has 188,000 miles and has been a great car. Now I want to ask it to tow a trailer across country. It would be a small uhaul, probably a 4x8 and not that jammed full to be maxed. Do you think it is asking too much of the car? Also I need direction about the kind of trailer hitch to rent too. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks for considering my question! Amy

Hi Amy,

Well, as far as towing with your car, I would seek the advise of someone at u haul or such. I'm sure they have a app for your vehicle.

Whew, towing across country with a V6 with 188, 000 miles on it.
Ehhhh, I don't think i would do it, however, it's what you are comfortable with. If this car has always been reliable, with few problems, then maybe yes. But over all, my personal belief of american cars with over 150,000 miles on them is to keep them for local driving, because when you take them long distance, there is always that one thing that goes wrong that you never account for..., at least from my experience.
