Gm does not advise towing your particular model with any of the wheels touching the ground. It would be less likely to cause damage if you had a front wheel drive only, with a 6 speed transmission. This is due to the fact that the fluid pumps in the transmission and transfer case are not operational during towing. The proper method for towing your vehicle is on a flatbed, or trailer. All this specific information can be found in your owners manual under recreational vehicle towing.

Equinox owners manual details procedure for flat towing. Motorhome.com lists equinox as dingy towable. Dealers and after market businesses are in sync. Where does GM recommend against this procedure?

The motorhome dates back to the 1920s, although there were allegedly earlier homemade version that predate this time. The Jennings company mounted a motorhome body onto a car chassis in 1938. Production was brought to a standstill in 1939, perhaps due to World War II. ================= [url=http://motorhomerentaluk.org]Motorhome Rental[/url]

WIth a 2 wheel dolly and the front end up can't you just drop the rear drive shaft which will prevent the transmission being engage and needing lubrication?
