We tow a Pontiac Vibe / Toyota Matrix, 5 speed, 4 down. Blue Ox tow bar. It's simple to hookup, and since the car is extremely light weight, you don't much notice it's back there.

2010 Honda CRV behind a Greyhawk 31FS. Use a Roadmaster system. Works great.

Hi All,

Very new to this. Waiting on delivery of our Greyhawk 32 FK. Will be flat towing my miata which is about 2500 lbs. Is a dinghy brake required?

If you go to this link:


There is a spot to click to download a 2012 guide to towable vehicles.

This is the direct download link:


I found it helpful as I am thinking about a vehicle update to go with the new MH.

We tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee with a Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain tow bar and a Brakemaster braking system.

I chose the Grand Cherokee Limited to get the transmission I wanted. This AWD transmission had a feature that allows the driver to push one button to free all 4 wheels for towing. No driveshaft disconnect or locking hubs to deal with. In addition, the sterring wheel is free to move with the key off and removed eliminating the need for a battery disconnect. The only downside at the time was this transmission could only be had with the 5.7 liter V8.

Towing with the Seneca HD 36FS, I found that, when you make a turn, the rear end swing moves the toad so that the toad tracks just outside the turn of the inner RV rear whels. Except for the tighest turns, you can be sure that, if the rear wheels of the RV clear a corner, so will the toad.

We haven't had a problem and the connect / disconect times are fast. The change to the Jeeps appearance is almost unnoticeable except for the missing tow hooks.

Motorhome Dinghy Towing Guide 2012

Here's the link to a great dinghy guide. http://prodcontent.s3.amazonaws.com/...wing_guide.pdf The guide is updated annually. if you substitute the year you can look back several years to get an idea about used toads.

We recently made the move to motorhome from towables. Now instead of a motorhome with detachable motor, we have a flat towable vehicle to tag along.

We bought a 2012 Ford Escape - the 2012 is enough cross-over to let us get off the pavement but still a good ride.

We did a lot of research. GM was very helpful with specific response to Equinox and Terrain that are both flat towable. Too carlike to take berry picking in the woods...
2012 Greyhawk 31FK.
First MH. Traded 2010 Jayco G2 25RKS.
Previous tow unit 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD SB Crew Cab 4x4 with 8.1 liter and 5-speed Alison.
Used it with Adventurer Camper, Montana 2955RL, and Jayco 25RKS TT
We've had pop-up, travel trailers, camper, and fifth wheel over the last 30+ years.
Waiting for spring to get back on the road!

Just purchased a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to tow with our 31FS. Have ordered the BlueOx tow plates, tow bar and accessory kit to have installed the end of next week. Still trying to decide on the braking system, the dealer is recommending the BlueOx Patriot. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on the BlueOx Patriot.
