If you're camping and need more stuff, you bought the wrong vehicle.
My son and I used to go camping in my C5. Tent, cooler, sleeping bags, duffles, food, it all fit.

I have that very same trailer that I use to pull behind our Goldwing Trike and our Plymouth Prowler. It’s fantastic for suitcases, coolers and my wife’s makeup bag (kidding). We just did a trip in our new C7 stingray and had ample space for everything we needed and we were gone for 6 week’s!

We love it and how well it pulls.. Sometimes the people trying to get that perfect picture can be a pain but it's fun to pull.

Sure, that's why I always have a Ram on hand, no matter what else I own.

That is hilarious! It's a corvette mini-me tagging along.

What about using the tow-hook location? If that is strong enough to support the weight of dragging a vette up onto a flatbed, surely is has sufficient horizontal pull capacity to handle a trailer. Who knows how much vertical load it can handle, however, so trailer balance might be a concern. Would it work to have an attachment that angled to center or is that a no-no? Might be a simpler option to rigging something new under the car.

Default C7 and trailer

I have had my small cargo trailer since my C5. Great for shows, cruises and such. Great conversation piece too.

Years ago I remember seeing a Vette convertible pulling a Hobie Cat 16. Seemed like a great match.

I built a hitch for my C7 Z06, and towed a trailer with EVERYTHING I needed to participate in Drag Week in 2016.
For the wiring I purchased a plug and play solution from "Hopkins", their part number HM11141575. It is very easy to wire up,but only after you remove the rear facia to get at the wires that plug into the tail-lights.
There is no cutting or splicing, and can be easily removed with no sign of it ever having been installed.
These cars have no problem with a small trailer, even at high speed
(like 115 MPH). I know, but ain't saying how !
