Newbie wants to tow car behind MH


I have a 2015 Forester MBS motor home (Mercedes Sprinter 3500 chassis) and want to flat tow a '98 Suzuki Sidekick Sport behind it. (I've read the Suzuki manual, I can flat tow.) Will include trip to Alaska in the near future. The Sidekick weighs about 3,200 lbs, MH is rated to tow 4,200. Any suggestions on brands or types of tow bars, brackets and all the other stuff I know nothing about?

We've used Blue Ox very successfully for about 15 years.

I just did a search on flat towing a '98 Suzuki, and there are apparently some pretty stringent requirements about how to set the transmission (different from any others that I've seen) and stopping to run the engine every 200 miles or so. It will all be outlined in the manual, I suspect.

Have a great time!
