Towbar for 3010DS

Being a newbee, I would appreciate any recommendations for purchasing a tow bar for a 2015 3010DS which can tow up to 7500 lbs. I would like to tow with all 4 wheels down on the tow vehicle.

I have a 2014 3010DS and I use a Blue Ox tow bar to tow a Buick Enclave which is about 5000 pounds. It has worked great so far.

A '94 Buick Skylark??? Is it an automatic? Are you sure it's flat towable?

if not I will have to get a small car that can be towable with all wheels down. Can you tell me where I can go to check if the skylark is towable with all wheels down? Thanks!

I'm not sure where you'd get that info, a Buick dealer perhaps. If it's not already towable, there may be some modifications you could make to make it towable. Might save you from buying another car.

Phone a transmission shop, like MR Transmission if you have one near you or phone dealer and talk to one of their transmission guys.

Search for Motorhome's Dingy Towing Guide. May have your car listed. Back issues are there.
