Tacoma flat towing update
I sent Remco an email asking about the 2002 Tacoma being listed on their site as towable but sites like the FMCA and Motorhome Dinghy Guide don't list it as such. I got an email back assuring me that it was fine to flat tow it and was also given a phone number to the guy that makes drive line disconnects for Remco and he assured me I would have no problems and he told me that they don't make a disconnect for that year because they do consider it towable. So I am confident that towing my Tacoma will be OK. I think Remco would not have given me a definitive answer unless they believed what they were saying. They do have a reputation to live up to. I went back and looked at the Motorhome Dinghy Guide and there is this disclaimer:
"Because of past confusion, it’s important to note there are many towable
vehicles that may not appear on this list. The reasons are many; some
manufacturers don’t want any liability or warranty problems that may arise
from dinghy towing one of their vehicles, while others have never conducted
research to see if, in fact, their vehicles can be towed, and find it easier just
to say they can’t be. One manufacturer “officially” recommends just one of
its vehicles for towing, but tells its dealer network and all of its customers
that virtually all of its models can be towed."
So I am going to take the plunge and tow it. I'll check back after our first experience and update you all.
