Has anyone had any experience with a Buick Rendevous as a Toad? I already have the Buick and want to tow 4 wheels down behind a Class A. Am considering the Remco lube pump with a BlueOx Aventa tow bar.

Mike6, welcome to iRV2.

You have chosen two good companies, Remco, and Blue Ox.

Hopefully, one of our members has some experience with this Buick.

Let us know how you make out.

You're correct that the Buick manual states no flat towing but that refers to the vehicle as manufactured but I thought that was the idea of the Remco lube pump - to keep the transmission fluid circulating while the vehicle was being towed.

Am I overlooking something here? It wouldn't be the first time as my better half keeps reminding me.

Thanks for the info.

Mike6, you are correct about the lube pump, but it might not work for all toads.

Have you contacted Remco yet to verify they do indeed have a solution for you?

Dirk, JH, et. al.,

Yep, Remco shows their LP-1 kit as appropriate for the 2006 FWD Buick Rendevous. I was hoping to find someone who had actual experience with that kit on the Buick.

Again, thanks for the replies.
