We are an official Fiat family. We tow a 2016 Fiat 500 Sport 5 speed manual 4-down when we travel in winter. It offsets our footprint, and we hardly know it's behind our Alfa See Ya DP. We also have a 500e that we use when we're at home in summer.

The vast majority of MH built (both Class A & C) are not DP, like yours is. We have constraints on tow weight. It's usually around 4 to 5K lbs, depending on GVWR, GCWR and hitch capacity.

We tow a 2011 GMC 4x4 1/2 ton crew cab pickup. Put the transfer case in neutral and the transmission in park, hook the tow bar and go. We sometimes haul a RZR 800LE in the bed.

2010 Honda FIT, automatic, 2wd. They just stipulate that you put the transmission in drive, and then to neutral. That's it. It's my wife's daily driver, and on the rare occasions that I have to drive it, I really like it.
