Most certainly, but at speed only. Enough speed that the trailer kinda floats on a cushion of air.

If ya be coming thru TEXAS on I-20 or I-30 I will meet and buy you a burger.

That's a good question. I'm sure somebody has done that. I've towed regular trailers and a two wheel car hauler before. Towed fine. But, if your planning on putting that nice charger in a big enclosed car hauler. I would check the weight first. That's a long haul.

sorry for all the "that's"

You pick up a Hellcat?

I wouldn't hesitate to tow a charger behind a stockish QC on a light trailer. Total weight would be less than 8k pounds - something that every component on the truck would handle. Behind a heavily modded QC? I'd have to think about that.

Well one thing is for certain, it would be the first manual QC towing a large load a long distance that for sure!

yes sir. love it. already started modding it too. but that's exactly what I am afraid of. my new motor in the truck with the 6 speed towing over a long distance. I really don't want to ship and have the same shit happen like last time.

Drive sensibly, plan your route as to avoid the mountains and long hill climbs, and you'll be fine.

If your frame is not C-notched you could have issues. I know your truck is low.

I am going to get my frame c-notched in january. I hate bottoming out everywhere. Otherwise, id have no issues towing a car even with my motor at 100k

you will be fine, just make sure to take breaks ever so often let her cool a bit, but make sure the weight distribution is correct on the trailor
