    It tows pretty good. I just hope my clutch likes it!!! Backing a trailer period is fun, but add a clutch, and trying to back is just plain mind boggling!! Anybody know what i am talking about??

    Old timer once told me, when backing up, with a trailer, steer with the bottom of the steering wheel the way you want the trailer to go.
    and practice practice practice

    Don't abuse the clutch by slipping it any more than you have to. That S-10 is a tough machine, it should take that light load like a charm. In the ole days I hauled a 16 ft dual axel trailor with 2 Lazers loaded. But it was a handfull. Thank God for NPRs

    Is that s-10 the 4 or the 6 cyl.????
    the 6 will have no problem but the 4 will be rough getting onto the highway...

    If it's a six 2.8 or 4.3? The 2.8 are pretty feeble, but a 4.3 will roll out pretty good. Four or five speed?
