If you plan to pull a vehicle behind your motorhome, the 2009 Guide to Dinghy Towing from Motorhome Magazine should be an essential resource about how to do it -- and do it right. And some great news: you can download the guide for free (see below).
You'll learn which 2009-model cars, SUVs and trucks can be pulled behind an RV with all four wheels down. Most vehicles are not classified by their manufacturers as suitable for towing because of concerns about damage to automatic transmissions. This year’s rundown of vehicles are those officially approved by their manufacturers as towable. If a vehicle is not included in this guide, then it’s not officially approved for flat towing.
Another very important consideration is the towing capacity of the motorhome chassis. This 2009 guide includes a comprehensive section that includes virtually all the major RV chassis and their weight ratings. Don’t buy a dinghy before learning how much your RV can tow without exceeding its weight limits. You’ll also learn about towing equipment. The editors profile many different tow bars to help you decide what’s best for you.
