lornaschinske, towing a single axle food cart is a completely different category, and has nothing in common with flat towing a four wheeled automobile.

My advise to you lornaschinske, is try to learn from what people are posting, rather than trying to prove your right. Being a "know it all" is a learning block. It wont do you any good in life. I only post for educational reasons to help others. Otherwize, I would not waist may time.

ALL automobiles that are flat towed using a tow bar suffer from advanced wear and tear. Its a fact of the way the steering is forced around corners. Some just show it faster than others.

NO PINHEAD! I read lots of RV forums where they discussed towing 4 down! Far more posters that towed 4 down than have ever posted on this specialized forum. I researched for a long time before I ever bought the Jeep. Do I know it all? Nope, but you think you do! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR FOE LIST SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ MY POSTS!

BTW , for any who may be interested, my "magic towbar" Is a Stowmaster 5000. One person hookup. Can also hook up when not perfectly aligned or on perfectly level ground.

Do your research and decide

Dinghy Towing
If you're a motorhomer who opts to tow, you'll want to join this discussion.
RV discussion website on towing. There's over 40 pages covering the past 12 months (you have to select "Past 12 months" so gain access to them all). Covers using tow dollies and flat towing, pro's & con's.

A Search for "Flat Towing" turns up this list

Now now children, we must be civil to each other. EVEN IF WE DON'T WANT TO.

Re: How to tow a car AND a boat?

I don't post stuff that I can't back up. Whether I post the many links or not depends on how I feel. I don't really like to share some of my links. Info is too good! Some things I simply do not wish to be out there. Others are promises I am keeping (like the special floor sealer recipe).

Seriously. do not go by what I on nat-what's-his-face says. You need to read the posts that folks who have done it, posted. You need to get the pro's & cons of dolly, flat & trailering. There are pro's & cons to all of them. You have to make the decision for yourselves. Not one single solution. What works for me does not work for another. All methods have had many, many miles put on and you can see what others have said. In other words get your info from the folks who "have the fruit on the tree".

MMM looks like I may have agitated the troll in this thread.

One more good read on home made stacker trailers.

I've seen that video before, but I'm not sure how they set that up in their truck. I've also considered a long flatbed truck to carry the boat and trailer, which itself would sit on a flatbed trailer to be towed by the bus.
