Newby Tow Info Needed

Other than removing the drive shaft, is there any way to tow a vehicle with automatic transmission?

Depends on the vehicle. Honda CR-V's and FITs and certain other brands with automatic transmission can be towed 4 down. Or you could use a tow dolly. If you can tell us what specific vehicle you want to tow we can probably help more.

Check out the Motorhomes Dingy Towing Guide. It is a fairly comprehensive list of toads that can be towed 4 down and what, if any, mods need to be done. There are separate lists for each year. Remco is also a good source in information.

Go to the Remco site and search. Many many vehicles with automatic transmissions can be towed 4 down.
