I pull a 2009 Ford Flex front wheel drive with no problems. Just put it in neutral with key in unlocked position. I use Blue Ox baseplates and towbar with a Ready Brake.It is probably 1500 lbs. to heavy for the f53 frame.

I tow a 2010 flex on a dolly. I tow with a 2008 Georgetown 370 XL. Don't even know it is back there! MHM gets 8 mph towing or not towing.

I have the 2010 Flex SEL FWD & a 2006 National Sea Breeze LX mdl 8311 powered by the GM 8.1 V-8 & Allison 6-speed tranny; just wondering if the Flex would be too much weight for the MH. Thanks for your input as well as your thoughts on my rig.

The Flex is a little over 4000 lb check your book on the coach, i know the 496 cc GM engine and Allison trans would not have a problem but be sure to install a toad brake and charge line.
