My DW and I have just started RVing, and we would like to tow one of our vehicles.
It is a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon, with auto transmition. Can this car be towed?

welcome aboard. Hope you stayed dry and are OK after the storm.

I would contact REMCO to see about a transmission pump to tow this car. It will be either the pump or a dolly. The Ford automatic can not be towed w/o mods..

Thanx for the info, Ken.

By the way, we were VERY lucky. Katrina passed about 60 miles east of us. All we got was a breazy day. But I had my MH tanked up and ready to go.

Seeya!

I would like to echo what Cajun Paul asked but instead I would like to know if a Toyota Camary can be towed. It too has an automatic tranmission with front wheel drive. I have asked some of the other Rv'rs I have met and some say that you need to disconnect this or that before it can be towed. If any body can shed any light on this one, it would be appreciated.
Thx's

Toyota does not allow towing with any of its automatic transmissions. Remco may have modification kits for some Toyota and Lexus models - give them a call or check their website.

REMCO is 1 800 228 2481.
