Lexus

I have a 2015 Sunseeker 2860 DS and thinking about towing a 2011 Lexus ES 350. Is that possible? If so, what equipment would I need to tow the Lexus, tow dolly, tow bar, etc?

Welcome to the Forest River Forums!

I believe that you will need to use a tow dolly. It is a front wheel drive automatic transmission. We used to tow my wife's 2011 Toyota Avalon with a tow dolly.

Hope this helps.

757Dave,
Thanks for the feedback. When you towed the 2011 Avalon I assume the rear end cleared the ground, correct? I figured I would need to use a tow dolly. Did you buy the dolly or rent as needed?

Yes, the rear cleared the ground just fine. We purchased the tow dolly, which we have since sold because we now flat tow our jeep.

On the forum, on the top right, is a search box. Just search on tow dolly and you will get several threads that you can read to get some good advice on purchasing a tow dolly.

Good luck!
