Not knowing what you want to tow, here are a couple of places you can start at.

dennis45 ...is right there many different vehicles you can flat tow. We started with a 4x4 Dodge Durango 1999 ..it worked pretty good all four wheels down, the dealer said we could not tow this vehicle well they were wrong. Also have used a tow dolly on two different ( FRONT WHEEL DRIVE ) cars and it was okay but a pain in the " keyster" Lol.
We now tow a 2006 Jeep Wrangler we just bought this summer off Ebay..great deal only one owner and only 20k miles on it never off roaded super clean, and I know some people wouldn't like it but it has a 4 inch lift kit and nice wheels. I wanted something that we could get parts for anywhere in the country and almost anyone can work on it. ( I really didn't want a newer one that I would have to take back to the Dealer to GET RIPPED OFF ON PARTS AND SERVICE ). Now sorry went off course Ikes...I do that some times . Any way we towed our, new to us Jeep on a 2000 mile trip in late Aug, and it worked wonderful. We bought a Stow-master tow-bar off craigslist for $300.00 I did make the tow brackets ( cost $35.00 ) but would have cost new $ 400.00 .... The Jeep is a great Vehicle to tow very easy !!!
Happy Rving to All

Just about any GM vehicle with a single fuse disconnect or fuse bypass switch. Towed a Malibu for years prior to getting my Jeep.
