Recreational Vehicle Towing

Cadillac CTS / Cadillac CTS Owners Manual / Vehicle Care / Towing / Recreational Vehicle Towing

Recreational vehicle towing means towing the vehicle behind another vehicle such as behind a motorhome. The two most common types of recreational vehicle towing are known as dinghy towing and dolly towing. Dingy towing is towing the vehicle with all four wheels on the ground. Dolly towing is towing the vehicle with two wheels on the ground and two wheels up on a device known as a dolly.

Here are some important things to consider before recreational vehicle towing:

- What is the towing capacity of the towing vehicle? Be sure to read the tow vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.

- What is the distance that will be travelled? Some vehicles have restrictions on how far and how long they can tow.

- Is the proper towing equipment going to be used? See your dealer or trailering professional for additional advice and equipment recommendations.

- Is the vehicle ready to be towed? Just as preparing the vehicle for a long trip, make sure the vehicle is prepared to be towed.
