How to tow an AWD Volvo

We are considering upgrading to a MH. Our main car is a 2007 Volvo S60 with AWD. Has anyone towed this type of car without using a trailer? We "full time" during Jan - May. I think having to deal with the trailer at every campground could be a pain.

We also have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler, which I think could be towed without trailer or dolly. But, it is not very comfortable for Southwest touring and it has no air bags.

I welcome any and all advice.

The Volvo is not towable 4 down or on a dolly. It does not have an internal transmission lube pump driven off the output shaft or a transfer case that can be shifted into neutral. The only way it can be towed is on a trailer. Looks like your stuck with the Jeep.
