Manual or auto trans? What does your owners manual state regarding it being towed?

It is automatic transmission.

According to the FMCA 2013 Towing Guide only manual transmissions can be flat towed. I'd check the Owners Manual really close to confirm or deny that...

If that info is correct you'll need a tow dolly. We use an Acme EZE-Tow with Surge Hydrualic Disc Brakes and we're quite happy with it. See Here.

At a brief glance, it looks like only the manual can be towed with 4 wheels down. So you'll be stuck with either a tow dolly or a flat bed trailer. We use a tow dolly and its not too bad to get setup. Only pain is you can't back up, so pre-plan your route.

We have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport with an automatic transmission, which we 4-wheel tow behind a 2014 Coachmen Encounter 37Z with no problems. You should check with the manufacturer or dealer regarding towing capability.

The owners manual I found online only mentions towing 4 down during an emergency, less than 10 mph and less than 1 mile. May take you awhile to get where you are going. I would double check but looks like it is a no.

Notes from owners manual:

CAUTION - Automatic transaxle
• If the car is being towed with all
four wheels on the ground, it can
be towed only from the front. Be
sure that the transaxle is in neutral.
Be sure the steering is
unlocked by placing the ignition
switch in the ACC position. A
driver must be in the towed vehicle
to operate the steering and
brakes.
• To avoid serious damage to the
automatic transaxle, limit the
vehicle speed to 10 mph (15 km/h)
and drive less than 1 mile (1.5
km) when towing.
• Before towing, check the automatic
transaxle fluid leak under
your vehicle. If the automatic
transaxle fluid is leaking, a
flatbed equipment or towing dolly
must be used.

I have a 2009 Hyundai Azera,We use the Acme tow dolly with surge brakes.It works great. I can have it on the dolly and ready to go in about 10-15 minuets. I do add extra tail lights in the rear window as the tow dolly's lights are at the front and low.but it's not required.
