Remco has been the experts for many years. They have helped me in the past.

I see several PT Cruisers being towed 4 down, and IMHO that is the best and easiest way to tow.

Remco has a great reputation for towing solutions.

I tow a PT Cruiser with a manual transmission. I've towed it for over 40,000 miles with no problems.

With the automatic, you cannot install a drive line disconnect, because the shafts are too small. The only solution tht I have seen is the Remco Transmission pump. It circulates your transmission fluid to keep the automatic from overheating.

There have been quite a few PT Cruisers towed this way. Make sure that the pump is powered by the motorhome's 12 volt system and that the alarm for a pump failure is active. You shouldn't have any problems.

Good Luck - W8RLM - Bob

The Remco pump is probably the most popular method to use towing an automatic PT Cruiser.

We tow our 2005 GT convertible with the autostick on a Demco KarKaddy SS tow dolly with surge brakes. It is no fuss, noi bother, with no mods to the PT or the Journey. Bad weather hookups are the worst event you will encounter.

We have towed our PT for almost three years and over 12,000 miles with no problem.

This is your other option--your call. Good luck!!
