Good Luck.

Good luck!

X-2 We've towed a GMC Canyon, Silverado, Jeep and Chev Sonic. But then we traded in the MH.

My folks used to use the Dolly, but that and a trailer is a pain to deal with in tight camp spots. So now they have towed 4 down for 10+ years, mostly Saturns (coupes, Sedans, and a Vue), and now tow a Grand Cherokee (think they just have to pull a fuse to not drain battery), another friend tows a Buick Enclave, All with no issues.....

As a non-MH owner my thoughts are worth about what you paid for them.

I can't see how anything would be easier than 4 down towing. A neighbor tows his Chevy HHR this way thousands of miles a year. He is 86 y/o and can connect and detach that chevy 5 min or less. I would assume you simply disconnect the toad prior to backing 99% of the time. The other 1% might be challenging, but its only 1%.

Any other method you have to deal with fitting a trailer or dolly in your site along with the MH and Toad. That is a lot of real-estate

The owners manual for our 2015 Equinox includes very clear instructions for towing 4 down - almost like GM caters to the toad crowd.

Can anyone tell me about the Tow button in the E450. Do you use it full time or just going up and down hills ? When towing of course. Thanks

Things to remember .. when towing flat you cannot backup..
a flat deck trailer is best BUT what do you do with it at the campground? most places will charge you to store it...
That leaves the tow dolly...
