As a note, it's doesn't pull too bad. Took my 89 Tristar to the gas station with it. It is slow and no modern diesel. You have to get used to the hummer rock at stop signs and lights.

I'm assuming the independent rear suspension makes it a little squirly.

It's too bad it doesn't look that cool to make up for the towing.

It really doesn't tow that bad. I wouldn't want to tow an x80 with it. According to the manual, it will tow up to 5k without a weight disrupting hitch. With a weight disrupting hitch it will tow 9k. However I try to keep the Rpms low and I have to say it is extremely slow compared to any new truck. But I still enjoy it way more than my Cummins that I had.

If my trailer had brakes it would make it better. All later model H1s come prewired for brake controllers.
