Looking at some of your previous posts, I believe you have a 2010 300TS. If that's the case I presume it's rated by Coachmen for a max of 5,000#. Does it have a hitch and if so what do the stickers on the hitch say ? What does the owner's manual say about towing ?
As for what to do , you have to first find out if the vehicle you want to tow is capable of being towed with all four wheels down, requires a tow dolly or has to be towed on a trailer, then proceed from there to get the proper equipment to set it up for towing.
The latter two methods of towing (tow dolly and trailer) will put you over the tow rating if you start with a 5,000# vehicle.
