The [[Vapid]] '''Towtruck''', is, as implied, a tow truck featured in [[Grand Theft Auto V|''Grand Theft Auto V'']]. It is significantly larger than the [[Tow Truck]].
   
A [[Vapid]] '''Large Tow Truck''' (''unofficially named'') is a vehicle that appears in [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. The Design of the truck is quite similar to that of [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'s [[Yankee]], which makes it a possible Tow Truck variant of the vehicle. It may be also a newer version of the [[Recovery]].
+
==Description==
  +
The design for the Towtruck seems to be derived from Grand Theft Auto IV's [[Yankee]], with an identical cab and chassis design. The major differences between the Towtruck and the normal [[Tow Truck]] are the model of inspiration, the size and the inability of being customized and stored. Unlike the other version, it has a heightened ground clearance, thus towing vehicles is considerably easier than its other variant. The Towtruck has a slightly rusted body.
  +
  +
==Performance==
  +
The Towtruck is powered by a V8 diesel engine, which is capable of bringing the truck up to great top speeds, however due to its weight, it is sluggish and unresponsive when accelerated. Its long wheelbase and chassis results in it having a large turning radius, but due to its weight, it is very stable when cornering and maneuvering at high speeds. Additionally, it can easily ram smaller cars off the road, and its durability is remarkable.

==Locations==

*A Towtruck reliably spawns parked outside in front of the [[Los Santos Customs]] garage located off of [[Greenwich Parkway]] near San Andreas [[Interstate 5]] ([[La Puerta Freeway]]) between [[La Puerta]] and [[Vespucci Beach]], behind [[Los Santos International Airport (HD Universe)|Los Santos International Airport]] (LSIA).

The Vapid Towtruck, is, as implied, a tow truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V. It is significantly larger than the Tow Truck.

DescriptionEdit

The design for the Towtruck seems to be derived from Grand Theft Auto IV's Yankee, with an identical cab and chassis design. The major differences between the Towtruck and the normal Tow Truck are the model of inspiration, the size and the inability of being customized and stored. Unlike the other version, it has a heightened ground clearance, thus towing vehicles is considerably easier than its other variant. The Towtruck has a slightly rusted body.

PerformanceEdit

The Towtruck is powered by a V8 diesel engine, which is capable of bringing the truck up to great top speeds, however due to its weight, it is sluggish and unresponsive when accelerated. Its long wheelbase and chassis results in it having a large turning radius, but due to its weight, it is very stable when cornering and maneuvering at high speeds. Additionally, it can easily ram smaller cars off the road, and its durability is remarkable.
