2006 saab 9_7x
I have a 2006 Saab 9-7x 4.2i AWD with about 70k miles. I will be moving from Idaho to Texas in August. I am considering renting a 6x12' Uhaul trailer. The combined weight of the trailer/cargo will be right about 4,000 lbs. The Saab has a towing capacity of 4,000 lbs with 400 lbs of tongue weight. The Saab has air suspension in the rear. The trailer has surge brakes. There would be 3 people in the car and one baby. This would be doable, but would it be advisable? Any suggestions? I have pulled trailers before, but not where the weight of the trailer is almost equal to the weight of the tow vehicle. I am mostly concerned with the stress and wear on the Saab. This is the cheapest option, but is it worth it or should I fork out some more money for a moving truck?
