Question Suggestions for towing Toyota Prius

We have a 2017 Toyota Prius 4th generation hybrid. We want to tow it behind the RV. Any suggestions?

Look in the owners manual for what is allowed.

Welcome to the forum.

You can tow a Prius using a tow dolly or, of course, a flatbed trailer behind your motorhome. You can NOT flat tow it (4-down) unfortunately (see page 224 of your owner's manual for confirmation of not towing 4-down).

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Looks like theroc answered your question. The owner's manual is the final authority on flat towing!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I towed a 2011 Prius on an acme tow dolly. No problems. I still have the Dolly, spare tire, straps etc for sale. Been garaged last 3 years.

You can't tow a Prius 4 down, but I tow a Prius on a dolly. Works great.
