What would i need to tow a vehicle?
You need a tow bar and base plate for the specific tow vehicle. I prefer the type that remains on the motorhome as opposed to the type that stays on the toad when unhooked. Example:http://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-Tow_...unt_Style.aspx
You can often find these on craigslist for a fraction of what CW or dealer will charge.
The base plate is like this: http://www.etrailer.com/base-plates.htm
Then you need to have a system for trailer lights and a braking system. I found these light to be great and they are independent of the vehicle light system and more like regular trailer brakes: Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-155
and then finally you need a braking system. Examples: Tow Bar Braking Systems | etrailer.com
I found most of my stuff on craigslist and eBay, but you can go to your dealer and they will fix you up too. It's not cheap, but the benefit of having a vehicle when you reach your destination is priceless.
Good luck and feel free to PM me if you have more questions.
