Towing 4 down
I'm looking to tow my AWD Honda Element. I know according to Honda it's supposed to be towed with all four wheels on the ground. Who on here has experience with this? I've read a handful of older threads. Since a tow bar and base plate are ~$700-$800 or more, I'm trying to get my dad to build me one. He is a mechanical engineer and also built the 3.5' long deck that bolts onto the frame behind the bus. (Read: he is capable and knows what he's doing as far as safety.) I really need to be able to tow while also keeping the deck, since our huge generator resides there.
Has anyone ever had a large distance between the tow point on the bus and the front of the car? 6' or so I'd imagine. If you tow four down, how badly do your tires fare in turns? Has anyone made their own tow bar? What are your experiences?
