What to buy to tow vehicle with motorhome

Hi,

I am having the hardest time trying to decide the best solution. I have a 2011 Honda CR-V. If I go with a 4 wheels down tow package, can you recommend a good one that is easy for older people to use and doesn't require heavy lifting or manipulating? What about a two-wheel dolly? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

We towed two different Honda CR-V's over our years on the road and always towed on the CR-V wheels. It is much easier to hitch/unhitch than to load/unload from a dolly. I suggest the Aladdin from Blue Ox which is able to tow up to 7,500# and yet it weighs only 23# as it is made from aircraft grade aluminum alloys. You will also need to have a base plate installed and there too I prefer the Blue Ox base plate because you can remove all that shows when you are not towing the car.

 

There are some other very good systems out there, such as from Roadmaster but we prefer the Blue Ox line.

We started with the dolly and changed to the 4-down as it is much easier to do. I actually fell down pulling our dolly around the campsite to store it. That's when the wife said that was enough of that. If you plan on RV'ing into your later years, you don't want to mess with the dolly. I would say it gets you by but that's about it.

Good advice, if you get in a tight spot on the road like at a fuel stop, a lot easier to just unhitch the car than to unload the dolly and then move everything and re-hitch.

We tow a 2014 CR-V with a ReadyBrute tow bar with integrated surge braking system connecting to a Blue Ox baseplate. The ReadyBrute is an "all terrain" tow bar and can be connected without the vehicles being perfectly in-line or level. As a result, with a fair amount of experience, we can now hook-up in <15 minutes start to finish.
