Will the SS manual shift trailer motorcycle?

I have a CBR1100 Blackbird I want to trailer to Euraka Springs, will the Camaro trailer 2 600 lb bikes in a open trailer......total weight of 1500 to 1600 lbs?

Use your extended cab lol. For the sake of avoiding the Red Neck stereotype

Well if you look at edmonds, the tow capacity for the mustang is 1000Lbs... I'd assume that the tow capacity for the Camaro will be similar.

I'm sure you could but it's not a good idea.

There is a pic somewhere of a prepro Camaro towing a Uhaul trailer and a Corvette towing a boat so I'm sure you could if you wanted to.

Draco you are right about the car that had the trailer hitch. I think it was the one that Merlin has pictured above.

I want to save my back for riding the mountains the trip up is boaring!!

ALL pre-production vehicles are equiped with towing devices, this is done for tow-able dyno-meters and other test equipment.

Unless there is a NHTSA approved hitch for your vehicle DO NOT use the vehicle to tow anything. Your just asking for trouble.

This statement is correct all pre pros have a hitch. I think the Camaro will tow your bikes but it wouldnt be a good idea imho.

Get the automatic and it will be no problem. The manual should only be used to tow it a couple miles like to a storage shed, with no passengers or other load, if on level ground should be fine.

Doesn't mean you couldn't, just that you shouldn't. Just like how you shouldn't tow a fishing boat with a Corvette but you still could.

Actually unless the towing device is approved/certed you can be held liable in case of an accident, which if involving injury or death could land you in prison. Insurance companies will also refuse to pay claims that have even the slightest connection (get rear ended, not your fault but have a hitch.. you could be out of luck).

If you need to tow, buy a vehicle designed to tow. Not a sports car.
