What exactly is the tow rating of that thing, anyways? :-)

I'd LOVE to have a "blow up" version just to park in front of my trailer in the campground. Talk about a conversation starter :D

The original is a bit bigger, but probably not big enough to really blow up much:

Reminds me of a recurring thing that happens to us when we go camping. See, being a family of four, we usually have to take her car along as well since my truck is a regular cab. My wife's car you see, is a Dodge Neon with a hitch on the back that we use to pull our little jon boat with on occasion. It always happens at least once during one of our trips, that one of us is gone in the truck and the car is sitting in front of the trailer. Well, it happened again 2 weeks ago. I was sitting out by the campfire, and my wife and kids were out in the truck doing some fishing at the river. A group of people walked by and I overheard one of them say "I wouldn't think that little front wheel drive could pull that trailer!" I always just smile and wave and play along letting them think what they want. :D

I guess they see that little hitch on the back of the car and think it's my tow vehicle. Of course most folks know better, but there is always someone that apparently doesn't.
