Hello everyone,
We are new to Camping, we bought a 2006 38 feet Coachman Diesel Puscher.
We like to know which Car with a automatic transmission we can pull without damaging the trany. Thanks Juergen

1. Motorhome magazine and FMCA publish a towing guide each year.
2. Remco website has a database of what can be towed.
3. Check the owners manual under "Recreational towing".

Youíll notice lots of Jeep Wanglers behind motor homes. Really easy to tow and light weight.

There's probably lots out there, but I love my Jeep Wrangler.
Easy to setup for towing.

Our toad is a Ford Edge, because we already owned it when we bought our MH. It seems to be a pretty popular choice. Not all of them are towable, so be careful if you consider one of them.

Hi Juergen! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Others have answered your question but wanted to say hello! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
