2019 Dinghy Tow Guide & Free pdf

My fellow RV'ers,

The following is not new to most Motor homeowners and operators. The ability to FLAT TOW another Vehicle behind your RV. In the link below is a 40-page detailed Guide of equipment you will need as well as tow brakes and OH YES, the type of New vehicles you can TOW, more importantly, to perform it all safely while driving. After all, once you have arrived and set up your Motorhome it's aways to go to the store, restaurants or just sightseeing the new area where you have set up camp.


Enjoy, be safe and remember, just another minute to do it all correctly will save you lots of time if you did something wrong. Please drive safe and you don't have to be the first to make camp.

That's a great guide that's published each year. Is it just me or does it seem like there are fewer and fewer flat towable cars each year?

I think there may be a few errors when it comes to curb weights. I have not been in the market for a truck or a toad recently but it doesn't seem correct that the Ford F-150 4WD would weight 10 pounds LESS than the Ford Ranger 4WD. I know the F-150 has the aluminum body and bed. I thought the Ranger also had the aluminum body and bed but I could be wrong. Also, the GMC Canyon 4WD models show to be under 4,000 pounds but the Chevrolet Colorado is shown to be around 4,400 pounds. I thought those were essentially the same truck.

Yep, contrary to what another member said here, there are fewer NOT more. Ford seems to be one of the few manufacturers that have many cars that can be flat-towed....my SHO with AWD is one.
