I'm new to the forum and really enjoy the feedback. I plan to purchase my RV from Nexus in the next months. I'm having trouble finding a new dinghy to pull behind the RV. So many require manual towing or lowering your transmission fluid and starting every time time you stop. Any feedback is really appreciated.

There are a lot of toads that can be pulled with an Auto Trans, and do not need to be started or have speed limits.

Our Ford Flex is one. Maybe a little heavy or big for some people.
Go to the Good Sam, FMCA sites and check the list of towable vehicles.

I would suggest a dolly and use the car you have now-much cheaper

Good point. But, not all cars can be dolly towed.

I'm picking up my NEXUS 31P in Elkhart Indiana on 4/4/12. We bought a 2012 Honda Fit - automatic transmission and it can be towed on ALL 4's! Only weighs about 2,800 pound, not expensive and gets real good gas milage.
Check my rvpainter blog for photos of our 31P/

We tow a Chevy Colorado 4 door pickup 4 wheel drive. No modifications, no restrictions. Tows great. There is a button on the dash that takes it out of gear for towing. Before that we towed a manual transmission small car.

I tow an H3 Hummer and currently in the process of wiring a new Ford Edge. The edge tows four down easily. Lighter than the H3 and more fun on the road.
