Anyone know if a vett can be towed on all fours behind a RV?? I do a lot of Rving and would like to take the vett alone.

Uhhhh:lookinup: just go get one of those flatbed trailers. I'm sure it can be done but would you really want to do it?

Towed cars catch every thing your duals throw out. I would go with a trailer and some thing to protect the vette.

I support the covered trailer idea. Your overall trailer weight should end up somewhere around 6k pounds, which should be well within the range of any RV.

People pull cars behind RV's all the time. Is it the best thing to do to a nice car? Probably not. Will you tear anything up by doing it? Probably not. The trailer is the BEST idea but you can pull it behind your RV.

I'm sure it could be done, provided you find the proper tow bar/hitch. Also if the vette is an automatic trans you'll probably have to disconnect/remove the driveline, if it is a manual you may also have to do the same......need to check your owners manual or someone more knowledgeable than me.

My advice would be to get a trailer with at least a guard on the front to stop rocks, dirt & grime from beating the front of the car up.

If I remember correctly (and if its still there) the Classifieds section has a few trailers for sale. Might be worth a look

I can't ever think of seeing a nice car towed in the open on all four wheels behind an RV. Almost every one I can picture is a 1990s Saturn SL sedan.

I'd at least go with a flatbed trailer that has a nose cone. It will keep the dirt, dust, stones, and bugs from the front of your 'Vette. You might also want to put a cover on it or something so something doesn't fly up and hit the windshield, for example.

Happy motoring!

Because of the design of the car its pretty much impossible to tow it on all 4 without really cutting up the front end to connect the hitch. At the very lest you would have to use one of the short trailers that you drive the front wheels onto so you could tow it, But at that point the cost difference between buying a two wheel trailer vs. a flatbed big enough to put the car on is so small that there is no reason not to spend that little extra for the flatbed and keep the car covered when you are trailering it.:thumbsup:

I'd go with a covered trailer. Keep that baby out of the view of potential theives and protected from weather. :thumbsup:

You should be in Florida, we see people pulling everything from full sized cars to Hummers. I guess if you can afford a $150,000 for a motor home and $70,000 for a Hummer, you don't worry about a few rock chips.:laughing:

If you can afford an enclosed trailer or at least one with protection on the front, that would be the way to go.:thumbsup:

tow

Tanks for the info fellows....I had not concidered how low a hitch would need to be. Maybe I will take the CV4. I know it can tow ( this would be behind a large 5th wheel, so rock chips is not a particular issue.

I do not believe it is safe to tow a C5 vett on its rear wheels.
If you have an automatic you will be spinning the rear shaft of the tranny without the pump pumping oil to lubricate everything.

In the old days we would remove the drive shaft to keep this from happening.
