Spoke w/ one of my RV (1998 Safari Trek) mentors today from our Trek online Club. He flat-out called me ''crazy'' (quote, unquote) for buying a dolly. He'd advised tow-bar system. Crikey. I replied, "If it turns out I'm Certifiable-- I can always sell the dolly for close to what I paid for it used-- unlike RAV4-specific tow bar system costing double/triple the dolly cost."

Do I need to be towing the RAV4 on Acme Tow Dolly soon-- for the first time-- debating if this was crazy-- or that I am!? Any of you who have dolly-towed RAV4 w/ a motorhome, thanks for weighing in.

eodgator,
What is safest max. speed when towing RAV4 w/ motorhome?
What kind of mpg do you get when dolly towing?
Thanks.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier, I was on a walkabout.

My max speed is 65 mph to maximize fuel economy and to make the old girl last longer. I usually notice about a 1 mile per gallon drop. I'm running a Class A Diesel Pusher 40' flat towing my RAV4 so really the RAV4 being back there is hardly noticeable in handling and performance.
