Using the Rav as a Toad

Sometime in the future, I expect to have an RV, and I'd like to tow the RAV behind it. It's a manual 4x4, will I need to trailer it, or is it going to be ok to tow it at highway speeds?

Thanks,

Michael

According to this chart (from our TSB section) towing the manual tranny RAV4 is OK http://rav4world.com/tsb/AX001-00.pdf 8)

Gee, from the title of your post I was thinking you might discuss how to get the RAV to dig into the mud or hop around or catch small insects. <sigh>

digging in the mud is easy.... find a nice, DEEP, muddy place... put into 1st.... floor the gas & watch the wheels spin!!! (don't forget to bring a spare landrover and a good snatch cable)

catching small insects is easy too... just drive fast down any country raod in summer & watch those bugs splat on your windscreen!!!

as for the hopping... well, it can be done in a manual, and normally by inexperienced drivers... takes a bit of skill though if you'r trying to do it on purpose...

my rav is green too, so i suppose it would make a good toad!!

You'll just put it in neutral and take the parking brake off.
