I tow a Ford Fusion (FWD) on a Master Tow dolly with surge brakes. Don't have to stop and run through the gears every 6 hours and using a dolly I can tow multiple vehicles without having to worry about base plates. After numerous trips the only time I ever had to disconnect the dolly was during a rally where all sites were back in.

Ours is a 2014 automatic CRV. No mods. Just a short procedure to go thru before taking off and repeat after 8 hrs if still traveling. 2015 CRV is not towable.

Towing an 05 Jeep Liberty 4x4 which is great because other than sticking the transfer case in neutral and having the wheel lock off it's easy breezy.

Now if we ever figure out how to get this Blue Ox Patriot brake unit to work for more than 2 corners we'll be all set. It seems like it bounces around in the floorboard way too much and sends itself into error 8 land.

One time, when it applied the brake it pushed against the seat adjustment lever and shoved the seat back. I'm starting to think Blue Ox makes really great tow bars but not so great brake packages.

1984 Jeep CJ-7 behind a '14 3010DS with a Smittybilt tow bar attached to the off road bumper. Gotta disconnect the rear DS but that's it and IMO it's WAY worth it to be styling around in my classic Jeep...and sometimes working on it in to the wee hours of the morning when something goes wrong. Such is the risk when driving a 30 year old vehicle...
