We tow a '76 Jeep CJ7 that has full floating rear axles with locking hubs. Just turn all 4 hubs to free position and away we go. Nothing in the drive train turns. Transmission left in park. I took the steering wheel lock off so the front wheel steer without the keys being in ignition.

We bought a 2004 Subaru Forester XS 5 speed manual tranny knowing that SOMEDAY we would be able to get an RV and knew that this car was recommended by Consumer Reports. Since we live in Colorado I liked the AWD for driving in snow. We finally bought a MH this July and talked the dealer into sweetening the deal by adding the Blue Ox base plate to the Subaru since the MH was already equipped

To protect our Mini Cooper from road debris, we have a Blue Ox shield mounted to the tow bar. Does a great job in addition to our rock guard on the back of our Dutch Star.

Hi... Like your title "TheloveCoach"..

We ordered it while we were in CA and drove to the place to have it installed once it was ready.
We use this for our Jeep Liberty. Coastline Cover Company: Tow Car Shields

Tow Car Shield is tailored to each make and model

We have patterns for just about all commonly towed vehicles. New production models are added as quickly as possible. We also have an assortment of patterns for vintage cars.

Take Care..

So the $150 neutral tow bar is in addition to your rigs tow package? What I'm asking is if you need a braking system for the toad? And how about the dolly set up does that have a brake assist? We're are trying to get the costs for setting up our rig for flat towing a pick up.Thanks in advance for any input you guys can give me!

I tow a 2000 Saturn LS , takes no time at all to hookup, curb weight is 2300 lb. I use Roadmaster tow gear, great equipment, easy to use and great customer service.
Have towed it well over 10,000 KM in the last 6 months.

Nissan Frontier SE pickup, manual tranny in neutral, ignition in neutral for steering lock. Brake Buddy, using a Falcon 2 tow bar. Vehicle weight 3,600 lbs. Never an issue. Having had rig brake issues with Workhorse, I would not leave home without a brake assist of some brand

2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT, electric transfer case, shift it to N, hook up, and away it goes, no hassles, pumps, warming, speed regulations, time constraints. At the end of the day, we have our comfortable SUV to tour in. Brake buddy, a necessity on heavier toad.
GS Tourmaster, 40' Trio, Mercedes engine, Allison transmission....Life is good on the road!
