Dubai Motor Show Logo

The Dubai Motor Show is a biennial auto show held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Due to the high interest of expensive cars in Dubai, this auto show attracts major car and super car manufactures, tuning companies, Antique Auto and Classic Car Restorers, Automotive restoration providers, a slew of motorcycle manufacturers, and other related companies.

This year, I went to see for myself whether the Dubai Motor Show meets its hype or not. I parked the car, walked the long walk, paid the AED65 (~$18) entry fee and and went into the Dubai International Convention Center halls. It wasn’t the weekend thankfully, so the crowd was just right. Funny enough, while strolling through the halls, I ran through a small crowd and lots of mobile phones taking photos. It was the entourage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (The Ruler of Dubai) who was visiting the Dubai Motor Show, with his son Shk. Hamdan, crown prince of Dubai. The later is one big royal fan of automotive jewels.

The Spring road trip and tow season is upon us, time for the experts at AutoMD.com to put together another Top Ten Tips list for car towing, to make sure that road warriors tow their precious belongings safely, while avoiding any possible tear and wear on their towing vehicle.

1. Understanding Towing Capacity

Never exceed your vehicle’s towing capacity. You may be thinking that you having a truck means you can tow a boat, but if the boat and trailer are heavier than your towing capacity, you can find yourself in deep water (literally!).

If your tow load exceeds your car or truck’s capacity, it can lead to significant mechanical issues and/or transmission damage. Plus, it can cause sway issues, which can have a devastating impact on others on the road. To find out what your car/truck’s towing capacity is, consult your vehicle owner’s manual. Read more
