Sister-in-law & brother-in-law new to Rv world are going to tow for the first time with a borrowed dolly. They intend to tow a 1990 something Nissan pickup, standard shift. 2 wheel drive They have a 1995 Jeep, standard shift, 4 wheel drive, they could tow, what is their best option & why? I tow 4 down w/trans-pump so I can't help them. Are their any real negatives to towing the pickup.

I tow a 2001 Nissan Frontier 5 speed. Have towed it many thousands of miles. I would guess you could put a Nissan Standard on a tow dolly, but I find 4 down easier, even though a little more expensive to set up.

And do not forget that they do need a braking system and a break away system on the towed auto/trailer.

Kent & Peggy,
Is there any thing you do to tow it, ie. put it in neutral etc. I like four down better but they are borrowing a friends towdolly.

Ken,
I've told them they need brakes & Im sure that their friends dolly has brakes, they bought their MH from him & he towed the dolly with it.

Thanks for the replies

We do put the manual Trans in neutral, key to first click to free steering. I also use brake Buddy System.
