I looked at the Remco website, and find that it's a little more involved than I would like to get.
Here's my other question:
I also have a small Dodge pickup with a standard transmision. Can that be towed just by shifting to neutral?
I realize that this may sound like a stupid question, but please remember that I am TOTALLY new at this and I don't trust car dealerships because they will usuallly tell you what will benifit them instead of you.
(Home I'm not stepping on anyone's toes, I used to be a car salesman.)

Take a look at the towing info on the first three link at this website RV Parts Outlet Should tell you what you need to do to tow your vehicle.

Paul, some standards can be towed 4-down, some can not. Totally depends on the tranny design. Remco also sells a drive line disconnect for some of the rear wheel drive vehicles.

Probably not. None of the Dinghy (Toad) Towing lists I have seen show any Dodge trucks as towable unless they have 4 wheel drive, so yours would probably need some mods from Remco.

But to get a specific answer, you need to provide more specific information about the year, model and transmission type on your Dodge.

The FMCA towing guide is easy to read. See http://www.motorhomemagazine.com/ and look for "Dinghy Towing Guide" near the bottom of the page.
