So your options are borrow a buddies 17 year old 150k mile blazer or buy someone's pos truck. Did you realize you could be fucking 700miles away from home when the used clapped out ranger/s10 breaks down?

Seriously take my cynicism with a grain of salt. I think you have a bad idea.
yea, but that saturn has lost ALL of its acceleration at that point, and if it's one of the really small ones, braking and everything else is totally changed. and mpg? forget it lol.
same with a truck I know, but I feel like towing a trailer is more serious.
Besides, saturns dont have hitches....

so are you suggesting I borrow the blazer? I wont get a junker trunk, I can find a good running and decent looking one, look up reviews for it and see if its dependable or not. Maybe do some preventive maintenance before I go. Are you saying both vehicle options are bad ideas? I wasn't sure about the blazers reliability, which seems to be mixed, which is why I was asking about that.
