Noobie question

Hello everyone. First off, I hope I'm in the right spot, if not, I apologize. I've looked all over and can't find a thread for this, so here goes. I am doing my research for my first bus and was wondering if it is ok to tow with a pusher? I have a jeep that I will be bringing with us and just want to make sure there are no issues. I like the flat nose but am ok with the dognose if I have to. Thanks.

Towing with pusher is fine as long as you mount a hitch properly. More important is the drivetrain, but pushers tend to have the more robust drivetrains. Main thing is to stay away from the at 545 transmission if possible.

Thanks

Was hoping it would be ok with the engine in the back. Don't want anything happening to my Jeep.

Biggest towing issue with RE's seems to be getting the tow bar properly mounted.
