Thinking about a small car like a sentra to tow behind MH with a 454 gas engine. Any problems that anyone knows of? Vince1996 Holiday Rambler Vacationer

Remco towing These people can tell you what it takes to make a vehicle towable 4 down, or even if it can be. If not, most any front wheel drive car can be towed using a "dolly", but keep in mind you have to find a place to park the dolly when you get to your destination. I'd think you'd be well inside your weight limitations.

Good luck!

I was thinking of a Hyundai Elantra since it weighs in at 3000 pounds. As for my EZEE Tow Dolly, when not in use, it tucks under the MH very nicely and doesn't take up any more length when parked

We used manual Toyota Corollas for years - last being a 2006 (43mpg). Never even new it was back there. Used a brake buddy at first then switched to a US Gear - fantastic.
Due to a nerve problem to foot we had to sell the Corolla this spring and went to a CRV - automatic - (left foot drivable). I put the US Gear into the Honda.
