I'm new here with a 29' Class C on Ford Econoline with 460 and C6.

Thinking about towing one behind and thinking of pulling along our old '86 Izusu Trooper. It's manual trans, 4x4. Front hubs will freewheel, but don't know about the rear end and whether I can just pull it as is. Where can I get info on whether this will tow as is with 4 down?

If I can pull this I may do for a Toad on the cheap. Thoughts on inexpensive way to get hitch for this one?

Thanks in advance,

Check your owners manual if you have one it may tell you if you can flat tow it. But more important check you hitch most on class C hitches are rated for 3500 lbs. How much does your Trooper weigh. My 4Runner is 4200 lbs.
If you can't find anything in your manual try giving Remco a call.
