Is anyone towing 2013 Dodge Challenger w/Std Trans

We are looking at a 2013 Challenger R/T 5.7l as a toy and to tow infrequently, both. The owners manual in the car says the car can be towed 4 down with std trans in neutral unlimited miles and a max of 65 mph. The Motorhome towing guide and FMCA towing guide both give the same info for the 12 13 14 model years. A month ago, the REMCO site gave the same information. We have made all the moves to purchase this car and now the info seems to be changing. Remco seems to list as trailer only now and some digital versions of the owners manual are suggesting the same thing. I searched here and RV.net and found very little information. Does anyone know of anyone towing a Challenger behind a motorhome 4 down. Blue Ox makes the baseplate for those specific years only. Thanks so much for any help or suggestions you can offer. Have a great day. Happy Trails Bert.

It could be the changes are a response to transmission failures, possible input shaft bearing lack of lubrication.
Have you tried an e mail to Chrysler or Remco asking for info on the change ?
It could be that Blue Ox hasn't reacted yet; if there have been problems reported; or if the automatic trans equipped cars are ok when equipped with a lube pump , then the base plate would still be available.
