New Four Winds 31W Never towed a car.

I have a new Four Winds 31 W. I have had MH before but never needed to tow a car. I need advice as to what works best for towing...trailer...dolly, or all 4s on the ground. I do not have a car at this time, so would also like advice on what to get. I am leaning toward a trailer or dolly at this time.

There is a lot of threads in this forum on this topic. Do a search for dolly to find them.

Tow dolly is the cheapest route, vehicle would preferably need to be front wheel drive, the lighter the better. Trailer is heavy and adds a lot of extra weight.

Jeep Wranglers are very popular when using a tow bar. Expect to spend over $3,000 for tow bar, base plate and braking system.

We are new to MHs, having all of our prior RVing done in fivers. This first year we have used an aluminum trailer for a Harley Trike as our toad. The total weight is right at 1,600 pounds. There is only one CG we have found that there were no pull thru sites and they didn't want our trailer on site.

We are going to transition from pulling Harley to a car toad. Currently leaning toward a Mini Cooper on a dolly. Pros and cons and many thoughts on dolly towing vs 4 down.
