My friend has a 2002 Winnebago (that he bought from me) and he wants to tow his 2006 PT limited Cruiser that weights 3147. The Winnebago has a 3500 pound tow package, do I assume it can tow the Cruiser? What do I need to know to answer his question. Thank you so much.

I tow a PT Cruiser and I know it weighs 3300 lbs. I would tell him to make sure he has a brake system for the toad - don't try to stop it with just the coach brakes.

Thanks for the input Rocket, I should have mentioned that my friends motor home is a class C 29b. I just want to be sure he can tow a vehicle with that.

We tow a Pontiac G6 that weighs about the same. No problem.

From what I recall, the PT Cruiser w/standard transmission can be towed 4-down, but w/automatic transmission cannot without alteration. Perhaps another Cruiser tower can verify that...

That's true, the stick shift can be towed flat without mods., otherwise you need a lube pump.

We towed a 2005 PT with standart transmission for over 20,000 miles without problem. Recently sold it, we still have the base plate for the PT if anyone is interested.

We towed our '05 PT Cruiser behind our '89 Chieftain for two years with out any problems. We used an auxiliary brake system for the Crusier and adjusted the brake sensitivity to ensure braking action. The PT scaled at 3100+ pounds, well under the hitch limitation. We now have an '06 Suncruiser 38J for a tow vehicle, so am looking forward to see how it handles the PT.
