    Internet experts ba,ba,ba.
    I can pull a popup with my garden tractor ..... doesn't mean I should.
    Towing is more than just facts/numbers. The weight, hitch, bumper/hitch height, how the trailer is loaded, how the tow vehicle is loaded, and more all play a part.

    "a lot of popup campers weigh well under 1,000 lbs" <---------- Ummm, NOT! [LOL][LOL][LOL] I'd say those are few and far between.

    I'm selling my Tahoe and hookin up the Dart. Interweb says so! If I want to get off a stoplight I have to turn the AC off, or I'd lose the race to a Yugo.

    When I saw the article, I thought it was best Tow Cars for a camper list - I'd buy that. Serious funnay here folks

    Those tow ratings are crazy. Why is a Volvo 3500 lbs and a 375 hp Challenger is only 1000 lbs?

    Not very good editors, don't they know that a 1/2 ton is 1000 lbs.

    After all, the Dart can tow up to half a ton, a benchmark that tops the towing limits of the Toyota and Honda compacts by 1,000 lbs.

    I remember those! I lived in WV at the time, at the top of a long hill. My grandparents also lived up there, and from their house, you could see the road coming up the hill. One day, a Yugo tried to come up and was struggling very hard. I think they were moving about 2 mph. My grandfather was losing it about how our country was going to hell in a hand basket now, with crap like that being sold as cars. He was legit enraged. It was hilarious.
