We had the same problem. After buying a new Berkshire we didn't have the extra cash to buy a new vehicle that we could tow. Figured that renting the first year would run us about $1,500. As a result we bought a tow dolly that would tow either our Volvo C70 convertible or our Dodge Grand Caravan. Both are under the 5,000 limit. A tow dolly takes longer to hook up than towing four down but you have more options. In out case we have two vehicles and can take either depending on whether it is just my wife and I or if we have company along. Much more versatile than four down and also more cost effective. Towing is easy but the hookup and unhook are more of a pain. Anyway I figured in the first year and a half it would pay for itself. We have Acme EZE TOW with surge brakes. Hope this helps.

I have a couple of questions. I see looking at the dinghy guides that you can flat tow a Subaru 2.5 x as long as it has manual transmission. We r thinking about buying a used one to tow behind our 27' Lexington. The engine is a E450 so I don't think that is a problem, but every time we go to see one the seller says you can't flat tow it because it is AWD. Does anyone flat tow a Subaru with a manual transmission? If so, is there anything we should be aware of ? Thanks in advance for your help.

Likely resurrecting a long dead thread but vehicles not that can be towed to haul 6 and be light enough for most 5 k hitches are few and far. Enter the 2016 ford f 150....super easy tow mode, throw on a wireless light bar and a blue ox plate and good to go.
