Title: TOWING
Post by: mymaize on July 11, 2017, 11:27:29 PM
Hi.   I have a 97 class A 31 ft and I want to haul my 2007 mitsubishi eclipse (small convertible).  Can I hook it up behind the moho or do I have to get a trailer?  Thanks

I am sorry to say but there are no Mitsubishis listed in the 2007 Motorhome Dinghy Guide, which is a pretty comprehensive guide to what can be towed flat and how to tow each vehicle. That said, you could tow this on a tow dolly.

Maybe. According to Remco if you have the 4 cylinder with 5 speed manual transmission it can be flat towed with restrictions. It appears other engine/trans combinations must be towed with a dolly. Details here (http://www.remcoindustries.com/Towing/Store.php).

Or, with a automatic, perhaps by adding a transmission oll lube pump, if you can find baseplates for this model.

Remco towing USA,, Go to the STORE and on the left hand frame (Last time I visited) you enter the details about your car, Year, make, model, transmission and so on.

Then the Main Frame answers your question

How to tow:
ONE: 4 down no mods or special instructions
Two: 4 Down with special instructions
Three: 4 down with modifications (lube pump, or drive shaft Disconnect (RWD) or Axle lock (FWD)
Four: Can not be towed 4 down. Must dolly
Five: Can not be dollyed, must be Trailered.

Remco will tell you,, note they also sell the mods.

Suggestion Tow bar, Ready brute with Ready brake.   If that is you can tow 4 down.

I think you should rent an RV; it will be a full utility for your trip.

They already own a Class A, why rent another one.
