actually, it carried the trailer level, its just the car is parked on a V in the driveway

got a tranny cooler, and wiring in the trunk too, this thing was set up right

only downside, is that there is a big dirt lot infront of the driveway that i use to turn around in <cars all over the place normally, and a line of trucks> and when i go through that, the car gets thrown around pretty good over the bumps and stuff, but it'* great. cant wait to get a new cat converter on it

i hope boost dont see this, hes gonna have a hayday

That is most definitely a first, I've never seen an RV (6'X12' trailer) hooked to the back of a Tempo, of all things. I work for UHaul and I'm not sure I would have let you have that one. LOL

i work at uhaul too. i was using the tempo in the safety certification process. seeing as how they want you to climb in the trailer and stuff, it seemed like the only way.

and btw, who likes pulling around a 6'x12' by hand?

I know I don't, man does that suck without the 2-wheeled dolly. And our lot is on an angle so the trailer is either rolling away from me really fast or at me even faster. LOL

I have a tractor at work with a hydraulic lift, works much better for moving trailers.
