Toad question.

We bought a 2002 cavalier automatic, 2200 motor, because is was on the motorhomes guide to towables. The manual says only 30- 80 miles. Can't I just put it in neutral and go. Would like to get something for a toad behind our 2016 Georgetown 335DS. Hearing lots of conflicting advise wanted to ask you the rvers . Thanks Bob.!

Are you saying you can only tow it 30 to 80 miles before you have to stop and run the engine?

You have to go by what the owner's guide says about towing. On most you can't just put an automatic in neutral and tow without burning up the transmission. On some you can install a fluid pump to keep the transmission fluid circulating.

REMCO states it is Flat Towable; however they also say check the "Owners Manual" to be sure.
