FOR SURE ! Unless they person selling you the car is an RVer don't take their word for it. I had a guy tell me my Jeep Liberty was not towable...after I had been towing it for a year.
I had to pull out the manual and show him the section on towing behind a recreational vehicle. His words, " I didn't know that". On one trip a fellow approached us and asked if we towed our Jeep (plate was RVTOWD) I said yes. He had towed his from Ohio to VA by placing it in neutral..on the advice of his salesman. Needless to say his transmission was toast
I asked him if he read the manual where it says you have to go through a few other steps before the car could be towed. Bad on him for not reading, but he just took the word of his salesman.
