I have towed a Impala on a cart, two full size Tahoes - four down (one half way across the country) and now a Lincoln MKX - four down. Learned a lot. I'd go 4 down and no cart. So far - my best choice - MKX, four down, a Demco tow bar - light hook up directly into the vehicle to use the signal lights on the car....no light bar - a electrical umbilical charge setup. Blue Ox brake system.

Lincoln MKZ Hybrids and Ford Fusion Hybrids years 2013-2016 can be towed 4 down by just putting in neutral.

Cut a closet dowel and insert a black rubber chair leg cover and you will be in business. Be sure your dowel rod is not real tight. I suggest you trim slightly and cover with tape to make it more water proof.

Walt,

I purchased two rubber stoppers from the local ACE Hardware store. I then twist them into the opening where the Blue-Ox pins would go.

Works like a charm!

Bottom line!!!! Choose a vehicle that you believe you will be comfortable driving. Call Blue Ox and be sure the vehicle is towable. I have heard sad stories about vehicles that were purchased that were not towable because of the transmissions. I tow a 2009 Saturn Vue that is perfect, but may not be for your needs. I have a switch installed to alleviate having to pull any fuses.

I use black rubber crutch tips to plug the round holes where the Roadmaster brackets go.

Our 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited has the most comfortable leather seats in any vehicle I have ever owned. I think it is because everything is electrically adjustable and it blows cool air if you want it to. But for me, I like driving my Sahara w/manual seats - to each his own. So towing we all the Sahara, for long road trips, we take the Grand Cherokee. have fun. mark
