Pulling a 2013 Ford Focus automatic 4 down using the Roadmaster Sterling tow bar. Can't feel the toad behind me.

Towing a Ford Edge FWD 4 wheels down using Blue Ox Aventa LX tow bars and SMI Stay-in-Play DUO braking system.... the SMI is the easiest to use braking system out there... I highly recommend both....

Back in 2011, I bought a brand new Chevy Cruze to tow behind the motorhome that I knew I would be purchasing in the near future. I chose the Chevy Cruze because it would make a great daily driver but the main reason was because the automatic transmission was compatible with dinghy towing. In January, 2013, I finally found the motorhome I had wanted and bought it. A few days later, I found the letter from General Motors that they mailed me stating that they had changed their mind about the Chevy Cruze being flat towable. I immediately contacted GM and requested that they either set me up with a different car with the same payment each month that would be flat towable, or buy me a tow dolly. They opted to buy me the dolly. It arrived yesterday. This was certainly not the scenario that I had envisioned, but it is now the one that I have. Maybe one day I will be able to trade for the Ford Fusion that I had looked at before going with the Chevy Cruze and won't have to deal with the tow dolly. For now, it is what it is.

Any recommendations for flat towing? Right now I'm considering the Fiat 500 or Mini Cooper. Anyone have experience with either?

I am towing a 2007 Honda CR-V. Put it in neutral (run it thru the gears first to lub everything first) and take off. Should run it for a little after about 200 miles but that is a days trip for me anyway. Not in any hurry. I have installed a diode from the Coach to keep it charged. Been going for 6 years with little problems.

Hi Chuck,
I'm getting ready to buy what I need to tow our 2008 CRV behind our Greyhawk, can you describe your setup please?

Lol. Saw a MH pulling a 5x10 landscape trailer which had a Smart car on it the other day.

I am in the process of setting up our 2013 CRV for towing. I have to do it in piece work. I have the tow bar adapter purchased already, looking into braking systems and the plan is to get the adapter and braking system installed at the same time.
