Dinghy towing guide

I saw somewhere a link to a Dinghy Towing Guide that listed all the vehicles that can be flat towed all the way back to around 2000. We are looking to buy something but everytime we find something that we both like we find that it can't be flat towed or will require major expense to convert.

Ray,
I've got them in "PDF" form, from about 2004 to 2013. If you'd like them, send me a PM as I'm not sure I can post them on here both physically and, whether or not it might generate some forum restriction issues. I'd be glad to post them on here as long as it doesn't create any issues with the moderators or anyone else. That is if I can figure out how to do it.
Scott

You can also go to the Store : Remco website to find the same information. I think Remco is better than the Dinghy Guide because it includes information on what modifications need to be made to vehicles to make them towable. The Dinghy Guide pretty much only covers vehicles which can be towed "as is".

Thanks DocJ., I was just talking to me wife about the possibility of converting our little Scion XB. I sure would love to find someone out there that has done it and what all is involved. I love the car and would really like to use it. I'm going to give Remco a call tomorrow and see who in our area is their trusted installer. Thanks again.
