I have a 31FS. I tow a 2012 Honda CRV. They are made now to be flat towable. Easy hook up to my Blue Ox towbar. Make sure you do check the list of towable vehicles. You can google it. Do not assume any car can be towed, it can't.

This past weekend, we towed our 2003 Explorer Sport for the first time behind our 2011 31DS, using the Roadmaster and Evenbrake systems. I had to have a neutral tow switch installed in order to disable the transfer case, not a problem at all. It towed like a dream over a 5400' mountain pass and back. 300 mile round trip.

For those of you who are towing Jeep Wranglers, what is the towing experience like? I have a Greyhawk 31FK and an Wrangler Unlimited that I am thinking about towing. I do most of my vacationing here in Colorado and I'm wondering how noticeable it will be over the mountain passes? Also, what tow bars or tow bar mounts are you easy to install without much modification?

Update to my original post. We decided to tow the Spyder. Bought the Blue Ox tow bar and base plate for the Spyder. Have taken about 4 trips so far with the longest being 3 hours. Very easy to hook up and drop when we get there. And the tow bar folds out of the way.

Thanks for all your suggestions.

I flat tow a '94 Toyota, 4WD, manual pickup. I know the owners manual says not to, but I checked with service department at two dealerships and they told me the manual only says no because Toyota did not want to assume the liability. I have been towing it flat for 3 years and have no problems. It has a manual 4WD shift and I leave it in two wheel, just put the tranny in neutral and leave the key in the Accessory position so the steering wheel does not lock. If it's causing any damage, I haven't noticed it yet.
