Tow Vehicles - Smaller ones
Towing a 2012 GTR on a single trailer. Not surprising that my 2011 250 Super Duty manages that like it's not there.
Other vehicle is a 2006 Accord, which will NOT handle that task.
What smaller vehicles are you using to tow your PWC? I'm looking to get out of the Accord into something used that is up to the task
and not spend $40 K on a new truck. Terrain here in SE Ga. is almost flat. Primary destination is 120 miles away at the lake near Augusta.

I would think any v6 should have no problems at all. Any 4cyl suv or truck prob no problem either.

Why won't the accord work??
Ski and trailer are at most 1000lbs..
You did say your traveling flat ground...

That reminded me of this last week I saw a Honda civic with a new rxtx behind it..
Don't know if he was over loaded but he did pass me on the toll road..

If you are going from a Super Duty to a 2wd car, just be sure to not let your rear tires get down into the slime at waters edge. I've watched sooo many guys get into trouble with that, especially in fresh water with concrete ramps.

I've got to heat the rear tires on my 2 wheel drive tundra on slick ramps..
I did that pulling my double trailer out of a ramp in Daytona.. my buddy was sitting on a ski on the trailer and got sprayed with dead fish particles..
There was a dead fish on the ramp and my right rear tire went right over it and man did that mess stink..
I thought it was hilarious and I had my buddy riding in the back of the truck till he was hosed off..
Your front wheel drive accord should doo the job.

You can tow a single ski just fine with pretty much any vehicle. I have used a Buick Century, Pontiac Solstice, Ford Escape, etc...
