Can you tow 4 wheels down with any stick shift vehicle?

What do you recommend as tow vehicle?

FMCA publishes a tow guide each year with the mfg recommendation. They also have archives for used unit. http://www.fmca.com/

I don't think you can make generalized statements about towing. Check in your owner's manual, don't go by what a salesman tells you unless they put it in writing.

Most stick shifts are towable 4-down, but by no means all of them. Thus you cannot generalize.

Are you specifically looking for a stick shift to tow? Cause there are lots of towable automatics too.

My advice would be to narrow down the type of vehicle you want to take with you, e.g. sedan/SUV/truck, large or small, 2WD/ 4WD/AWD, auto or manual, etc. and then get suggestions for vehicles that fit that profile.
