    Towing question

    I know I should post this somewhere in a car forum but figured I would start here. My job has me working away from home about 4 days a week this summer. I bought I lake house with a boat ramp in the community aprox 100 yards from my house. My work car is a Toyota prius they make a class one hitch for this car. My question is this car is not designed to tow and im thining of taking one of my skis a 2012 gti 130 up to the lake house and leaving it there so I can play while up for work. Problem is the prius will be the only vehicle I have up there to tow it to drop it in. Do you think there will be any issues with this? Mostly a flat tow but may also consider towing to another spot 5 miles each way once again flat tow no hills. So the furthest distance would be ten miles round trip in flat conditions. Just curious what anyone's thoughts or experiences on this would be?

    Itll be fine, pulling is the easy part, its the stopping you need to worry about.

    I also admitted I owned a gti 130 and a ultra lx and you chose to pick on the prius. Atleast it will do over 100 mph I struggle to get both of those skis over 50 lol.

    Unless you have a big-o double trailer loaded down with 2 big ass heavy skis and all the gear from your garage ... just about any car will tow it on the road. Maybe a little tough on steep ramps when pulling out. But for the short trips you have planned ... no worries. I have towed my skis, my utility trailer and small "scamper RV all with my VW Bug. I never had an issue. Good Luck : P.S. I actually saw a Smart car launching a ski @ the ramp last year. The ski was longer than the car LOL.
