I want to tow my 2003 Ford Thunderbird with my Thor Ace Motor home. It will tow 5000 lbs but I'm not sure whether to use a tow dolly or tow it with all four wheels on the ground. Any suggestions?
SInce the T-Bird is a rear wheel drive car, you can't tow it with a tow dolly. Because with the rear wheels on the ground the driveshaft will spin overheating your transmission. But there are a few exceptions. You can disconnect the driveshaft first and tow it with the front wheels off the ground. Another way would be to tow it with the rear wheels off the ground, fronts on the ground, or all four wheels off the ground. Here is a link that might help a little. With the rear wheels on the ground the driveshaft will spin overheating your transmission.
I all ways like to tow my TBird on all four because you never know one of your tires could go flat and you not know or something I'm just saying how i'd feel if mine was to be towed on its wheels.
And I think it kinda depends on long your traveling for.
