Seeking a vehicle that can be flat towed

I have a 2018 Sunseeker MBS 2400r. I'm looking at vehicle that I can tow behind it that are less than 3,000 lbs. Does anyone out there have a Class C MBS that are towing a vehicle? If so, what vehicle are you towing?

Thank you for your response. I have the guide. I was just seeking information from others who may be towing a vehicle behind their Class C MBS to see what the pros and cons might be.

Be sure you don't just look at what can be flat-towed, but also the procedure. Some are a real PITA, with complex steps and/or having to run the engine at regular intervals.
I chose our Cobalt because it is so toad-friendly. I installed a switch that disengages one fuse. Now when I'm ready to go, I have these 4 steps:
1. Parking brake off
2. Transmission in neutral
3. Key to on (just before start)
4. Flip the fuse switch
That turns off electronics and frees the steering wheel to turn. all set!

Dinghy Vehicle

We bought a 2018 Equinox front wheel drive. It ways 3,327# towed by a Sunseeker 3050S. Tows like a dream and the wife loves the car.

My Toad is a 1983 Suzuki Jimny, a four-wheel drive off-road mini SUV. It has a curb Weight of ‎1000 kg OR 2205 lbs. It has a dual-range transmission and is a true 4-wheel drive vehicle.

Flat towing is no problem. Just put it in neutral and go.

Parts for a 1983 Jimny is no problem. The Jimny is still being manufactured and is one of the favorites among the off-road enthusiasts. Most parts are available through local auto parts stores and everything else is available on-line.
