Back in the day, before SUV’s existed, station wagons were THE vehicle for pulling trailers. I (actually my mother, until I got my driver’s license) pulled with a station wagon. It all depends on the size of the engine.
The only problem now is finding a station wagon :D[/QUOTE]
Yep. The full-size ones don’t exist anymore, really. The Outback is a small SUV, not a station wagon.
When I met my husband, he had a Chevrolet – don’t remember which model but one of the last they made – with a towing package, rated for up to 5000 pounds. Admittedly that wouldn’t get you far with a horse trailer and horses; he used it for towing classic cars on an open trailer.
My parents bought a Chevelle wagon in 1970, kept it until about 1990, and sold it for $500 to a young man who was starting a landscaping business. We saw it around for at least 6 or 7 years after that… It had 238K miles when my parents sold it.
