Is your RDX All Wheel Drive or Front Wheel Drive. If front wheel the tow dolly makes sense. All Wheel would concern me.

Curious.

Nothing like towing your Jeep behind your Coach. Nice set up.

Ok... It took me some time to figure out what a "toad" meant. In conversations around the camp I didn't show my lack of knowledge on the subject and would usually for get to look it up until this post. 😃

So that's what it means😃😃😃

I currently have a different set up, see below but would like to tow my Dodge Ram. Has anyone towed one and what modification did you have to make? My understanding is some vehicles you can tow without mods.

I have a Landgrebe tow dolly loaded with a Ford Escape. I think I would tow with all four wheels on the ground, but with many Ford automatics flat towing will cause automatic transmission problems without adding a remote pump. My Escape is front wheel, two wheel drive. Since I retired from Ford, I drive a Ford.

If your Dodge is a 1500 automatic 4WD.

Go here for MotorHome magazine Dinghy Guides years 2000 thru 2016.

Your Ram maybe too heavy to tow. I know mine was, so we traded for the Dakota. I wish I could tow my Hummer H2 but that's too heavy too!!! Check your hitch capacity and the GCWR of your GT.

Luv the Mini.
