I was pulling our 2000 Mazda Protege sedan, but it was an automatic transmission and we had to use a tow dolly to keep the front wheels up. That proved to be a major pain in the ---. So we sold the Protege and found an 03 Mazda B2300 pickup with a standard transmission so it can be towed 4 wheels down. Much, much simpler to hook up and disconnect.
Recently took it on a 9,300 mile motorhome trip to Alaska and the combination worked great! I would highly recommend towing a vehicle w/4 down - it is the way to go! :hihi:
