  • Post your tow vehicle

    What do you pull your Celebrity with? Post pictures here. I will start. I know that our tow vehicle is the wimpiest on this forum. I'm sure everyone else pulls their boat with a Body on Frame pickup or SUV. Well here is ours. Its a 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere. Extended wheelbase, 3.4 Liter V6 with 185hp and 210 foot pounds of torque. We pull an '88 210V (21 foot cuddy) between our summer house, our mechanic's boatyard, and the lauch. All of which are within 5 miles of each other. We plan to bring it to Chicago next year. The van struggles a bit at first but once it gets past 40 mph or so it does fine. The only problem we have is wet boat ramps. FWD is not the best setup for towing a boat that weighs more than the tow vehicle. The only advantage it has is automatic load leveling so the rear end doesn't sag.

    What do you use?
    Any interesting stories?

            Here is mine - 04 Avalanche 5.3/4L60E - At the max for towing but does a great job. Pull it 30 miles one way damn near every weekend. Boat is a 97 250 SunDancer 250 - Around 7,600 lbs as it sits with a full tank of fuel and the cooler stocked with "refreshments"
