Re: towing Dale Long 7-21-04  
I want to tow a 2003 Chevy Tracker flat. The owner's manual gives instructions to do this but says to stop towing every 200 miles and run the engine in the Tracker for 5 minutes. Is anyone out there towing a Tracker 4 wheels down and how are you doing it?

Re: towing Doug Carter 1-12-03  
The best way to determine your towing ability is to understand the towing capacity of your engine.
Engine and transmission tow capacities are the key. Your vehicle will probably tow any size automobile especially a small saturn or geo etc. But that is not the issue. The issue is- THE TOWING CAPACITY OF YOUR VEHICLE ENGINE MINUS THE TOTAL WEIGHT IT IS TOWING FULL FOR TRAVEL. In other words 1.Weight of camper fully loaded with your travel needs. 2. Size engine 3. Size transmission. Then ask your dealer the towing capacity AND WEIGHT, usually in the camper somewhere posted, of the camper and the weight of every vehicle is posted usually inside the auto lower driver door it is called the auto bible by mechanics. If your dealer or mechanic says you have 20,000 pounds of towing capacity and your CAMPER weighs 14,000 pds full, then the difference is YOU MAY TOW a 6,000 lb car MAX as an example. Remember the length OF THE CAR IS IMPORTANT many places will not be accessibble over 27 ft in the mountains. BUT I HAVE SEEN A 36FT CLASS A DIESEL OR V10 TOW A LARGE TRUCK WITH NO PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM IS BACKING UP UNLESS YOU HAVE A FOUR WHEELTOW TRAILER FOR THE CAR.
Re: towing Pat 10-14-02  
Each year, Motorhome magazine publishes a list of towable vehicles, trucks & cars, whether or not they require any special preparation, how fast you can go, curb weights, etc. I have a copy of one but it's several years old now. Look for an up to date copy.
Re: towing Pat 10-14-02  
I would be happy to look up a vehicle on my list from 1997 and tell you if it's towable and how, etc. --Pat

I would like a list of towable vehicles that can be towed with the blue ox
Re: towing Glenn Davis 12-23-09  
Our '03 Winnebago 29B's owners' manual says the towing capacity of the "factory installed hitch" is 3500 lbs. However, the hitch itself is stamped 5000 lbs. I would like to tow a 1700 lb. trailer (w/ brakes) with a 2500 lb. car on it (total of 4200 lbs.). According to the sticker on the door, I should have almost 6000 lbs. of towing capacity. Which is correct, the sticker (6000), the hitch (5000) or the owners' manual (3500)? What would I have to do to get to 4200 lbs capacity?

Re: towing Roland 1-17-03  
The question is to tow or not to tow. The answer really depends on the extent of your travels. Are you in your camper for a week or two at a time or are you in it for longer periods. Bicycles are OK for riding around a campground, or touring an area if you are long distance riders but not very practical if you have to get groceries. If you stay out for a week or two at a time you may be able to bring enough supplies that you don't need to go grocery shopping. However without a toad you are kinda stuck at the place where your rig is parked. You can always unhook and tour in your coach, as long as you don't mind the hassle. Towing a vehicle really is not a big deal. The toad goes wherever you go. As long as you do not make any sudden maneuvers you are OK. What you have to keep in mind is not towing the vehicle but STOPPING both the RV and the Toad. Your braking distance will be much longer, especially if you do not have anykind of break assist in your toad. The combined weight of both vehicles AND your speed can more than double your stopping distance. If you are in moutainous terrain, going DOWN We have camped with and without a toad, it really depends on the situation.
Re: towing Roland 1-17-03  
Sorry I hit the wrong key. Going DOWN a steep slope is the most critical maneuver in mountains. Almost anything will get you up the mountain. If you overheat the engine it is not life threatning. Going DOWN a mountain with overhested brskes is life yhreatening, so GO SLOW. We have taken trips with and without a toad, it really depends on the particular circumstance.
