Man I LOVE those Sidekicks...it was what I was looking for before I stumbled on the sweet deal on the Chevy Tracker I built up.

There are a ton of nifty things to do with that unit. Easy to tow as well.

Re: Towing a car/jeep with a van

I passed one for sale on the way camping Friday. Memorized the location and planned to stop by on my way back this afternoon. Gone already.

Re: Towing a car/jeep with a van

Well I changed my mind on the Samurai. Turns out adding it as a 2nd vehicle costs more than my van as a primary vehicle, so my insurance would have more than doubled! Guess those little things are a little too easy to wreck. The fuel saving driving it 3 days a week wouldn't even cover the extra insurance, plus it's one more vehicle to spend money on (I can't leave my vehicles stock....). I'm on the lookout for a 250-450 dual sport instead.
