Barry J Prior ASKED THE GUIDE

Are autos or manuals best for being flat towed?

I have a motorhome and I'm looking to flat tow a vehicle, hooked up to a Ready Brute A-frame. I would prefer an auto as my wife will use it as an everyday drive when at home. There are not many vehicles that can be flat towed and most of the car dealers I have asked haven't a clue. One didn't even know what flat towing meant. What's your view?

I've done some checking and no one recommends flat towing with an automatic. You really need to totally disconnect the drive system, which means a manual. Many people choose a Suzuki Vitara as it is light and relatively cheap secondhand and also has maximum flexibility when you get to your destination.
