Towing a '99 Toyota Avalon

We are planning on retiring at the end of 2013 and currently have a 2006 Montana 3400RL 5th wheel and '97 Ford F350 truck to sell before moving to a Class A DP, a long time dream of ours. We also have a 1999 Toyota Avalon that we would like to tow behind it. We have talked with a local Toyota dealership and they say the best bet is to go with a lube pump rather than an axle disconnect for towing all 4 down. They also said that we would have to have two axle disconnects (front wheel drive) if I were to be able to go that route. I'm basically thinking I should go the lube pump route, but I would like to hear about any opinions and actual practices before making up my mind.

Your best bet is to contact REMCO Towing Products and see what they recommend.

You might have to go with a dolly. Seems some cannot even use the pump, you have to give RemcoStore : Remco your trans #. You will be putting alot of money into a tow package for an older car. I loved my 98 Avalon brother still driving it with over 210,000 miles now and he loves it.

Thanks for your replys. I have contacted Remco and they make a pump for the Avalon, so I will go that direction.
