    [bigdumbsquirrel] My MH came with a tow bar for towing on all fours. Does Anyone have recomendations for a vehicle? I want one light weight, but dependable and 4WD so that I won&#039t have to modify the drive shaft. Is there a way to tow a car with a standard transmission without modifing the drive shaft?

    Thank you,
    David

    [Gary B] Hi David, most any manual(standard) vehicle can be towed 4 down, just install tow bar, hook up to MH leave ignition switch in accessary position,(so as not to lock the steering) and tranny in neutral. check the lights and saftey cables (Recomend a aux brake system) and away you go. Happy trails GB

    [bigdumbsquirrel] Thank you for your replys. I have a commanche pick up I would like to use, but thought I would have to modify the drive shaft. If I can use it by just putting the standard transmission in neutral that is my best choice.

    [C. Bell] Have you checked out the Honda CRV? It meets all your criteria & it&#039s 4 wheel Drive. Hope this helps

    [Gary B] Hi again David, I tow a 1990 Mazda B2200, with manual tranny and ti tows great, I can&#039t remeber seeing a truck like yours in tow (but that means nothing sometimes I can&#039t remeber what I had for breakfast) but have seen a lot of Jeep products being towed. Slap that tow bar and enjoy GB

    [Shelly] Many vehicles available to tow on all fours with or without standard trans. Chev. Malibu, Cavalier, Allero, Saturn are a few. Always check with the manufacturer first but there are many models to choose from. Also once you get your tow vehicle, get the Protect-a-Tow to keep it looking new, it&#039s excellent protection for both your RV and Towed vehicle. Check it out at www.protectatow.com To get a great list an info on towable vehicles check out www.towingworld.com and go to the vehicle info link.
