Well if you can get it through a gap you will not have a problem with the van behind ;-)

The Hummer will go where the van can't, and I would forget trips to Devon and Cornwall with it!

Hello Jack.

A friend of mine used to have a car sales showroom and had a hummer h2 for a while as a sort of figurehead in the showroom.

He used it for a few months but just found it too much on tight uk roads, and the fuel economy was well over the top regularly turning in around 7 mpg. I know that doesn't answer your question about towing with it but if i see him this weekend ill ask him if he ever did tow anything. I must say though it was an awesome vehicle all in all, you felt like a little lad stood next to it and everything moved over or stopped when we went anywhere in it. If i could afford to buy and run one i definately would.

I presume you are referring to a Hummer H2 and not an H1. Even so, it's going over the top a bit, rather like using a ground-to-air missile to shoot sparrows.

I agree - great description Lutz.

Some things from the US are great, some are good and some are "Oh my God"!!

Is it just me or do others find Harley Davidson motorbikes a totally bizarre choice for UK roads.

I see them in the New Forest, making a delightful noise but the handling is such that they can hardly get round the narrow lanes! OK I suppose on a Motorway, but that "round back - feet and hands forward" seating just looks odd to me.

It's the same with the Hummer. I just think it is not designed for our roads.

As such there are far more capable AWD vehicles available.

Summary? - Pure "Bling"

Lutz & Watson,

If thats my chosen method of transportation then thats my choice, I don't expect to be criticised for it so keep your personal opinions to yourself.!

My original question was asking about the Hummer as a towcar of which the other posts referred to.

I thought that this site was for help and discussion to assist other like minded people, or are you above that? not critiscm !

Thank you to the others

Jack

Well thats told you two off, well and truly - Lutz & Watson!!

How dare you have personal opinions!!

And how dare you post them on here!!

Just one question? - why when my views of the Hummer were more negative than Lutz or Watsons was I not identified for a bit of silly abuse as well?

Perhaps I did not make myself clear - Anyone who even considers a Hummer, in my personal view, has more "Bling" than sense.

Posers car - thro and thro.

And Jack - we all have personal views on here - the trick is not to take others views personaly yourself.

I agree with you Clive. An opinion was asked for and I gave it. It's got more than enough weight and pulling power. All we were saying is that it's got so much, we would consider it excessive. Besides, one would need at least a C1-licence to drive it. It's rather like asking whether a 7.5 tonne MAN truck would make a good towcar.

One of the funniest posts I've seen in a while ..has any body ever seen a Hummer with anything on the back ?

The MAN truck you may get about 18 mpg on average so it's probably got more going for it and it won't depreciate nearly as quickly

As for been offered one at a good price .read the bloke can't sell it

Never seen one with anything other than military hardware on the back MH.

But there is a really tastfull bright yellow one in Brighton owned by that lisping ex-boxer - it even has furry dice hanging from the rear view mirror!

You want to be careful towing with this vehicle because there has, in previous years, been a lot of concern regarding the possible damage to a caravan chasis towing with 4x4s. I cannot recall the nitty gritty of the issue but it could damage your van. Check on this with the caravan chasis manufacturer before committing yourself. Also there was a report on TV regarding these vehicles and the size of the vehicle was so large that it caused major problems on both estate roads and country roads but was fantastic on motorways. If you are enammered with the vehicle go for it and enjoy it and to h**l what others think.

Brian, why should I care that you are from N.Ireland ?

Thanks Cris that site was most helpful and has given me more help than you could imagine. For those of you interested we run a Limousine business and was thinking of using the Hummer at various shows as we do with the Limo's. We have in the past provide many a happy day for under-privelaged children and we feel that it would benefit to have this vehicle to tow our caravan to the shows instead of the Disco and provide a fun day for everyone .

Can I pick up my toy's now?

Hi Jack - interesting to see you run a limousine business. I have been toying with the idea for some time. What I have in mind is not the large glitzy white yank tanks but more the type used by undertakers i.e. Coleman or similar. What I had in mind is executive traval for senior management visiting the area, classy black cars for weddings and the possible hire to undertakers as necessary. I realise that you are in a different part of the UK but do you think my idea is a starter or a no go. Your comments would be very much appreciated.

I reckon the biggest problem will be trying to find a towbar for a Hummer which is type approved to EU standards. Without such type approval it would be illegal.

Jack you give us all a bum steer on the use of your tow vehicle, if its promotional for the like of a business then thats fine why not just say so on your original post, but to throw in the kids that sucks, if you want a hummer for the kids to go in the caravan then why not just say so, we would have given you a big thumbs up and no I really do not care if you consider my geographic location high on your list.
