    Looks like I may be taking a trip to the great state of Texas in a few weeks :salute: I'm helping my sis-in-law move back home. So I'd be flying into Austin Fri night, hooking a U-hual trailer to the back of her Escape, load up, and head home to LA to be back Sunday night. Sounds fun huh:D Cali has a 55 limit for towing and was just curious if any of these other states have similar laws. Just trying to figure my times out for getting back.

    Also I may need to recruit some EF talent for help moving stuff into a trailer:thumbsup:

    Naw, You can drive slower if you have a big vehicle. I drive 62mph in the Van.. Towing or Not and I'm fine.

    Now, I would never do that in the honda as I'd und up under someones truck.

    I will try to make it to help you load the u-haul, I don't see any reason at this time why I shouldn't be able to get to Austin on the 20th.
