The only place that I have been able to find tow vehicles for sale that can be towed 4 wheels down is on www.rvt.com. Does anyone else have any sites that list vehicles already equipped to tow? US or Canadian sites.

Glad to have you here on iRV2. I do not know of any specific locations for dinghies, other than the few that may show up at dealers.

Why not just find one you like and add the tow base, tow bar and braking system. You can find used towing equipment at Hitch Trader.

With an exosting dinghy you will not know how the previous owner treated it when towing or even how far it has been towed.

When we had a motorhome and a dingy, the car had 50,000 miles on the odometer from driving, and had been towed another 60,000 miles. The suspension was showing the excess mileage and it was not as tight as a car with only 50,000 miles.

We lived in Thornhill, Ontarion for 2 long and cold years...I sure do not miss the cold and snow.

Welcome RVfor4 to the best forum for rv information: My experience with a tow vehicle started with my friends' used saturn tow assembly & brackets for a cheap price($125) total price. Then came the search for a good saturn-a '95 sl1 4cyl-5spd. I was then ready to hit the road.i pulled it 2 yrs. Then i found a '00 sw2 that had a blown motor. Motor & labor $750- I could put a 12ft inflatable boat & motor in it -shut the lid and off to florida. I now am working on a'03 vue to tow. You just have to find what's comfortable for you to use. Check the posts in this area of the forum and get a lot of info as to how others faced the same things you do. Just don't get in a great hurry.Remember it's your money & decision in the end.Best of luck and keep all of us posted. Again welcome to the forum...

Welcome aboard and good luck in your search.

Just food for thought!

Just to give you my experience. I just spent the last two weeks or so looking for something to replace my 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I needed to replace another vehicle that we have. And with my better half retiring this year decided to up grade the Tow vehicle we could use the one for everything. Looked at used and Program Vehicles and this was in the Jeep line. What I found were some 2008 Liberty and Commander Program Vehicles that had been part of a fleet lease with over 18,000 miles on them. It would cost me almost $18,800.00 plus sales tax. The only warranty it would have would be what was left of the 3/36. We found out that with the Chrysler employee discount, the $750.00 Rebate, $1000.00 if you use the 0% financing, $500.00 if you are in the Military or have served in any of the branches. We bought a 2009 Liberty Sport with 15 miles on it. It has all of the 3/36 and the Life Time Power-Train Warranty. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles but the standard package has quite a lot to offer. And it has one Customer Preferred Package. It was $2,300.00 more to go new. And you might be able to work a better deal you never know. It's definitely a buyer market.

Some posts have up to 5 lines in what I presume is the signature area. But I can only fit 3 lines in.

Used Toad

Bought my 2003 CRV on Craigslist. Set up for towing & included tow bar. Had the dealer check it out and everything was fine. Craiglist is all over the country, so check there.

You might consider looking right here in the classifieds section. I just put one up for sale myself that has an excali-bar hookup and wiring pre-installed. The excali-bar goes along with the deal for less that $2000.

You may not have noticed but this thread is 7+ yrs. old now but I saw it so maybe it doesn't really matter. Found my toad on RVtrader in FL.
