Is there a combined listing showing what models, makes and equipment can be towed 4 down and the needed customization needed.
Example:
4WD Escalade, 2006, automatic, V8,
- can it be towed 4 down?
Does it require a transmission disconnect?
or/and does it require a pump?

Any help pointing me to a URL or pdf file would be wonderful.

Deborah

Deborah, welcome to iRV2.

HERE is a link to MotorHome magazine's list of 2006 vehicles that can be towed without modification.

Unfortunately, the Escalade is not towable without modification.

Contact REMCO TOWING as they can help.

Thank you for the information. Currently we tow a 05 SportsTrac (Remco'ed) and/or a 97 BMW 318ic (manual trans) both have BlueOx base plates. But Hubby has the itch for a Escalade. Once he hears this, the itch will most likely end. We thought because the Escalade is 4WD it might just slide by. But not to be. Thanks again, Deborah

He can go ahead and scratch that itch, as I have seen several Escalades being towed, obviously with Remco's help.

I've been towing 2006 Z71 4 down for over 2 yrs. This was explained in my manual. With 4 wheel drive the Excalade should be no different.

Escalades, Yukon Denali's, and possibly others have a different transfer case than most GM 4WD's.

That transfer case has no neutral position.

I had a 1998 Yukon and the manual said that it could be towed 4 down. I was afraid it was too heavy though, so I bought a 2001 Ford Escape. It's towed GREAT!!
