New to Forum/New Berkshire 34QS/Towing Decisions

We purchased a 2016 Berkshire QS a couple of months ago and used it extensively to find any bugs and have dealer resolving those now. Both of us are still working but plan to take a couple of week long or so trips each year and multiple 2-3 day trips closer to home. Started with 2002 Fleetwood Bounder in July 2015 and loved it so much decided to step up to the 2016 Berkshire QS. We have NO experience in towing any kind of vehicle and need help deciding which way to go given our MH, part time travel, etc. We have a 2011 Lincoln MKZ hybrid that is light weight and front wheel drive which means we would need a 2 wheel dolly???, and is that expensive/difficult? Also have a 2013 Ford F-150 which is clearly heavier but wouldn't require a dolly. Could also buy an older model light weight car just for towing but didn't know if that makes sense for part timers since we would have cost of the vehicle, insurance, tag, etc. Don't know the pro's/cons of each. Any help is greatly appreciated. Love the forum already!
