    and don't forget to take the shirt off, or at the very least wear a wife beater.

    You own a truck yet you want to use your Civic. Were you stoned when you came up with this business plan?

    I started out by putting a push mower in the trunk of a 1983 BMW 320I. It was turbo charged on 10PSI and was pretty much my third child so I hated to do it but I needed a way to haul equipment until I got enough cash to get a truck. I worked my way up and got a trailer and a walk behind and yes I hauled a 4X7 and a walk behind with my BMW. It didn't look very professional at all and even if you put tons of advertisement on the car and trailer it just couldn't ever look professional but in my area there's tons of cars hauling lawn trailer, mini vans, small suv's, etc...But personally I'd stick with the truck. I absolutely love my cummins vs hauling with the BMW I had.

    If nobody but you and people from the L.A. area know anything, why post the question in this forum?

    This post makes me feel a little better about my Ridgeline.

    Not having been to southern California, I can't say for sure, but something tells me that what would seem "unprofessional" in most parts of the country would hardly be noticed there.

    Also, a note to the OP. Not trying to flame anyone, but your posts might be taken a bit more seriously if you would learn to use the shift key and punctuation marks. :)

    My first vehicle was a Ford Escort. I installed a hitch, and towed my trailer with it. On the trailer I carried my 48" Scag walkbehind, trimmer and blower. At red lights It was sometimes a tiny struggle to get the triler going, but did a pretty ok job for, the time. By the time I got rid of it, it had no rear suspension though, so expect to destroy your civic.
