Take the motorhome and then buy a Mini Cooper S 6 speed to tow. Not as quick as a Vette, but fantastic ride, seats 4, and is fun for curvy roads.

Vettes are fun and fast, but you can't sleep, pee, bathe, cook and party in the vette.

Try going potty in your Vette and then decide.

There was recently a guest, here in our "home" park, that towed an '05 Vette on a dolly. He had done so for over 6k miles with no issues. He explained that the 'pump' was driven by the rear transaxle and not the engine. He had some kind of ritual he went through after hooked up, gears and ignition - I don't know the details, then he was off.

Vette

Traded the Vette for the Wrangler. Lot's of fun in a different way. Always more Vettes out there.
0-60 in 30 seconds is not bad with nobody chasing you!

We chuckled at the rv park when we saw a mini being towed and on the rear window of the mini there was a decal that said simply:

ACTUAL SIZE



And if I recall it was twice the size of the smart car (that imho is not TOO smart )

As you go though your life, priorities change.

My wife wanted a Corvette her entire life. When we went through the factory, I asked if she wanted one. She responded that she no longer wants any vehicle that will not tow our trailer!! (We are full timers)

Funny how things change.

Had a 60 and a 63 split window if I had them still, they would be worth far more than the Aspire.

Vettes are very uncomfortable to sleep in also.

Did the same thing and I don't miss the Vett. Got the T-shirt and grew up.
