    Just curious, how old, and make and mileage of your oldest active towing vehicle? My vehicle is a 2002 E150, 106000 highway miles. Not any trouble with vehicle.Just wondering on a rainy day with nothing else to do.

    2003 4 runner with nearly 190k miles. This is my daily driver and everything vehicle, I first bought her in 07. She had only 20k miles then. So to say I have put her through her paces and she is still running strong. Only replace the catalytic converter. Well other than your normal wear and tear stuff.

    1972 Chevy C-10 Pickup. I don't use it to pull the TT, but it does fine with the Pup and my boat. Odometer shows about 55,000 but I don't know how many times it may have rolled over. Crate motor has about 60,000 miles.

    My '04 seems young in comparison, at only 105,000. I'm old enough that 100,000 still seems like a death sentence, although I know this isn't true any more.

    1977....56k miles...original motor, tranny and just about everything else. We bought it new just to pull campers. Its pulled over half a dozen. It's always been garaged and never used as a daily vehicle.
