it rained real hard and "they had to get the tractors"

i'm still a newbie/trainee.

we had a local campout, and it had rained a bunch and i got stuck in my own yard...

the first thought that went through my head is a story about fmca in perry, ga. several years ago... it had rained and folks couldn't drive out, so the ag facility got their tractors out and pulled? motorhomes to solid ground so they could leave...

i have access to a small tractor, so i thought that i would hook it up and pull the mh.
i looked underneath, thinking that i would see some sort of good tow rings or hooks or something... i didn't. the tractor stayed in the barn... i found a buch of gravel and a shovel, and got "unstuck"
all of this leading to a question.

how do you hook a tractor to a motorhome without tearing up the front cap?

or ?? maybe use rear hitch?

The big tow trucks use a winch that lowers the pivot point to ground level. That way, no damage to the front cap.

If your tractor has a 3 point hitch, you may be able to do that.

Pulling from hitch on rear is recommend. Lifting front wheels is only way to tow an IFS coach. Lifting frt solid axle is doable if thats what you have.
