Hello from Don and Lynda Forbes. We have purchased a used motorhome and we need help deciding the best toad to pull. We want it to be 4 wheels down for sure. And not a jeep. Still argueing on stick shift or not. We need suggestions.

Welcome to IRV2. Check out this part of the forum.

It will give you an idea of what others are towing.

Hi Don & Lynda! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join us!

Congrats on the new rig! I would suggest you go over to the "Toads & MH towing" area under "RV Forums", search the forum, and post specific questions there. You will get far better results since not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome, well to answer your question it really depends on how heavy a vehicle you can pull with your rig. I pull a 4wd Tahoe, I'm able to lock the transfer case in neutral, then turn the key off and remove it and the steering wheel will turn allowing the Tahoe to track as it should.
Let me remind you to check out the thread "Attention Newbies " you may be close to Cape Girardeau, Mo. and we would love to have you join use newbies April 12,13,14. Any questions private message me.

Welcome to the site. Good luck on your toad choice. I like my Grand Cherokee limited. Space, comfort and 4x4 if needed.

Thanks to all the welcomes and info. We just can't wait to get out there with everyone. Our first trip will be the end of May to Palo Duro Canyon in Amarillo, TX. Hope to see some of y'all on the way.

Welcome to the forum.You have already gotten a lot of good advice and I want to add that we pull a 2000 Saturn LS 4 down with no problems.It is small and my wife does not likke it so I am looking at other possibilities.I use the Remco web site to see if they have any details on how a certain car can be towed four down.
I have kinda narrowed my search to Saturn Vue 2009 or older cause they are no longer made.Honda CRV,Jeep which I really dont want,Chev Colorado 4x4.and Chevy Equinox
You must consider the weight and towing abilitiy of your MH and then if you need automatic you will be severly limited in your choices.
Good luck.

Thanks for all the info. I really want an automatic, but Don doesn't care. By the way we have a 2000 airstream deisel pusher, if that matters. Everybody says it does.
