Flat Towing

Can my current vehicle or vehicle I'm looking to purchase be flat towed?

If you don't like navigating your motorhome through the tourist attractions, sightseeing spots, and parking lots you've probably considered dinghy or flat towing. 

Many people wouldn't even think of traveling in their motorhome without a dinghy. A dinghy is a vehicle that is towed behind a motorhome. (Also referred to as flat towing, four-down towing, and recreational towing).

At Litha Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Grants Pass we offer many vehicles that are suitable for dinghy towing. Vehicles that are generally acceptable for dinghy towing are FWD with manual transmissions and 4WD with manual transfer cases. Some FWD vehicles with automatic transmissions are also flat-towable. 

Before purchasing a vehicle for dinghy towing ask to read the owner's manual to confirm that the vehicle is approved by the manufacturer for flat towing without causing damage to the drivetrain or otherwise voiding the manufacturer's warranty.
