Can someone tell me if a 1994 Toyota Corolla manual transmission is able to tow with four wheels down behind my RV
Where can I find out this information?

According to this 1994 dunghy guide, no.
However if possible locate and check an owners manual from the manufacturer to verify.
If you are going to continue to look for a vehicle, here are the available GS guides listed by year with links. Motorhome mag guides

A vehicle that old will not be listed in any of the towing guides. Also, back then Toyota did not address recreational towing in it's owners manual. However, having been an engineer with Toyota at that time, your car can be flat towed with the manual transmission in neutral. One thing you will need to do is slightly overfill the differential case and transmission to insure good lubrication. Your biggest problem will be finding a baseplate for the car.

Manufacturer is the best source. Not opinions.

Remco towing only lists back to 1996, but they do show the Corolla for that year as towable as is with the 5-speed manual transmission. As far as I can tell, the same 5-speed fits '94 to '97 at least...
