Can I tow 4 down a Smart car? I have also heard that towing 4 down chews up the front tires. Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

If you plan to park a SMART for very long, you'll need some type of trickle charger. A paracitic current draw from the on-board systems depletes their toy starting battery in about 2 weeks. There is a perfect spot to semi-permanently install a BatteryMinder model 12248 into the removable passenger-side floor piece, under which you will find the baby battery.
The 2008's and newer 451's are towable 4 down. The pre 2008's or the 450's and not towable 4 down. The folks that I have spoken with who tow a 451 behind a MH or Class C have said they tow great. Because of the weight just 1,588lbs there is no need for any additional braking device.
