We tow a Buick Enclave. A very nice car. Easy to do. Remove 2 fuses and hook up tow bar. You can put fuses on 2 switchs also.

What are you towing 4 down?

We tow a '97 Suzuki Sidekick 4X4, automatic, behind our '01 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Vision. We bought the Suzuki from a private party and it already had the holes and brackets for towing. Then, as luck would have it, the same day we purchased the Suzuki, we traveled about 25 miles further down the road to a guy that was selling a Roadmaster Stowaway tow system on Craigslist that fit our Suzuki and those brackets like a glove. We got the Roadmaster Stowaway for $40, the seller installed it for us on the Suzuki, it was in "like new" condition and came with all the parts plus the protective cover. No problems towing 4 on the ground. Sometimes everything justs falls into place. Life is good.

I didn't want to tow my full size pick up or the wifes yukon, so i went found me a cheap jeep cherokee wagoneer limited....1990 140k...this is a great 4 down toad. Blue Ox tow system...I have no brake set-up yet....but to be honest...when towing if it was'nt for my rear camera i wouldn't know it was there. Even coach braking it isn't noticable. Not sure the laws I'm breaking. Towed in park with transfer case in neutral. No mods neaded.

Toyota RAV4 AWD Stick shift with Roadmaster All Terrain Towbar. US Gear Brakes and wire kit. I think it cost me around $2,000 to set it up. Was done in 2005 and almost 80,000 miles of towing ago. Actually wore out the Falcon 2 towbar (used it for several thousand miles on a prior coach and tow'd. On our third set of tires on the RAV4.

Ritual requires that we turn key to ON then turn off and leave in lock. This prevents the steering column lock from locking. We use Valet key for that. Toyota says to run engine every 200 miles. Since we seldom go more than 2 hours without a stop (driver change) it is no problem to run back to the tow'd and start the engine and let it idle for 3 or 4 minutes while we take a break. Because of the US Gear Brake system we have a charge line from the coach to the tow'd, no battery issues.

2007 Saturn Ion, works great and takes about 5 minutes to hook up and pull 1 fuse if you tow a long ways. If I only tow daylight hours and for 3 or 4 hours I don't even pull the fuze.

Another jeep owner. I tow a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2 door automatic. I use a Blue Ox tow setup and a US gear auxiliary brake system. I place the transfer case in neutral and transmission in park. In 2010+ keys can be removed as there is no wheel lock.

Been towing 4 down with different cars for 7 years. All I can say is once you get the knack hooking and unhooking is a breeze.
Good luck

Four wheel towing

I have towed a jeep wrangler and I currently tow a Chevrolet HHR. Both are very easy to tow. The jeep had a transfer case, and no electronics to deal with, it was a 2005. The HHR has a fuse to pull, and I jumped the fuse with an inline fuse and a rocker switch. Real easy.
