Okay, this is absolutely my last try. The following paragraphs were added
for successive tries. I'm hoping that Mark's (the guy who maintains the
list and is an all-around swell guy, even if he is a Triumph person)
anti-spam software has a time limit of less than 24 hours because it was
last night that I last tried to send this. Changing the subject slightly
is an attempt to defeat any sneaky anti-spam code.
I'll try sending this again. I think I've figured out the blank email
phenomenon. If I first try to send a posting without deleting the trailer,
when I send the same message without the trailer, only the trailer shows
up. Can you tell that I test software for a living? Here's the message
that wasn't worth all of this effort:
In the towing threads I've seen, no one has mentioned that U-Haul requires
your tow vehicle to be heavy enough and powerful enough and have a class
III welded hitch before they will rent you the trailer. The tow dolly only
requires a class II welded hitch. Their website http://www.uhaul.com/ asks
you the year, make, and model of both the tow vehicle and vehicle being
towed and then it tells you if it will work. When I entered 1967 MG for
the vehicle being towed, the options they listed were B, BGT, Midget, and
Sports Sedan! They even recommended removing the driveshaft of a '67 B
before towing (!). I didn't check to see if they would also recommend
removing the driveshaft of a '67 Sports Sedan (MG 1300) ;-).
