Default 1990 to 2019 Dinghy Towing Guide Books

Towing a vehicle behind your Class B motorhome can be a true adventure, more so if your "Faking it" meaning you have the equipment but not sure how it all comes together. Also if your Class B is too small for the Toad Vehicle.

The attached FREE 1990 to 2019 Dinghy Towing Guide comes out every year for Motorhome owners. The Guide will introduce equipment needed for attaching a tow vehicle. Breaking equipment that can be used for your tow vehicle. Mostly it will be showing you the new vehicle models and what is needed to tow them.

Flat Tow, means all four wheels on the road. Some folks like using other kinds of lifts and trailers to tow or attach the extra vehicle.

Good list, by manufacturer starts on p. 18 (once you get past all the ads).

I've never seen a true "b" pulling a tow vehicle, however.

I thought the same "rowiebowie", and being in this forum I try to be open to ideas. Even if they're not my own idea and a post I read had stated tow bar and tow vehicle. I check to make sure I was in the right forum, thinking I could see pulling a trailer, not a vehicle. But at the end to each there own.

Dogman,

I just did a lithium upgrade to my '2012 Airstream Avenue Suite on the Chevy 3500 Express chassis. http://www.classbforum.com/forums/f2...rade-9752.html

It's no Coachman Li3, but I still have dreams of adding more lithium batteries to my current two. Please report when on the capabilities of your new rig after you take delivery.

Hey Rockwood,

Hope you know I was just joking. A tow vehicle makes sense if you're going to settle in one spot for a while and want to leave your main rig hooked up to utilities. I imagine the Sonic is easy to tow due to it's size and also guess it's a standard shift, which makes towing a breeze.

No offense taken! It's actually an automatic, one of the few that can be towed 4-down. We did a 6,500 mile cross country trip a few years ago with our 36 foot Class A and needed something light to tow. My previous car required a dolly and would have been a pain loading and unloading every other day. Since that trip, we got rid of the Class A and bought the Roadtrek and a 40 foot, quad slide 5th wheel. The 5th wheel stays in FL and the RT is our commuter RV to travel between NH and FL (hence towing the car). This is my wife's new 5 year plan! We use the RT for several days to several weeks at a time camping up and down the east coast.
