First, consult your RV documentation to make sure it's towing capacity is up to the task.

According to the Remco Application Chart, your manual transmission corolla is towable 4 wheels down without modification.

To do this, you will need to purchase and (have) install(ed) a base plate and tow bar system for the corolla, as well as an auxilliary braking system.

OR, you could buy a tow dolly with electric brakes, and strap teh corolla on and go.

OR, you could buy a trailer and pull it that way.

Each option has pros/cons that only you can evaluate based on your needs and preferences. Most people who CAN tow 4 down, do so and find it to be the least hassle.
