What do you tow 4 down?

We have a restored Manx style Dune Buggy. But as the body worsens we want something different to tow. What do you tow 4 down? Thanks for the replies!

2019 Ford Explorer; 6 cylinder models flat tow, 4 cylinders don't. The new 2020 model won't flat tow, period.

I've towed a 2004 Suzuki XL7, 1991 Miata and now a 2000 Lexus RX300.

Store : Remco

The Remco site will tell you what can be towed 4 down or modified to tow 4 down.

We used a 2012, 2014, and a 2018 Equinox as our toads. Stayed under 4000 lbs and decent size interior.
