Tow PT Cruiser With Automatic Transmission-- Tow Bar Or Tow Dolly?tow dolly bar
Posted 02 September 2012 - 10:55 PM
I am changing to a diesel pusher and already own a PT Cruiser. With the diesel pusher is included a tow bar, but of course, I would have to get a trany lube kit installed, buy base plates, have the wiring hooked up to tail lights. We plan on keeping the cruiser for a while, but might may change our minds, too. In its favor is easy on-off the MH.
I am also considering using a Demco Kar Kaddy SS on sale now for around $2400. This would require more work to hook and unhook, but has advantages that we can tow other vehicles without modifications.
I am interested in opinions on which is the best way to go and why you feel that way.

When we got the PT in "02 we got the Remco lube pump and found we did a lot more sightseeing since it was only a couple of minutes to unhook the toad. If I have to give up my 4 down I go back to motels.
With our Vue we don't need the pump so there is only 1 cord to disconnect. The easier and quicker it is the drier you stay in the rain. It always seemed to rain when we had the dolly.
The fellow I sold it to offered it back to me free and I turned it down.

I HAVE A 2005 PT CRUISER AND USE A TOW BAR AND LOVE IT. ALSO IT DON'T REGISTER MILES, AND HOOK UP IS FAST EASY AND YOU DON'T GET DIRTY.

I will speak for the Remco Lube Pump. Since I am driving a Buick 2005, we have used the lube pump for five years with no problems. We have put over 30,000 miles on the pump and not a problem. The pump makes it very easy to unhook and drive away. Also easier for those times when we have pulled into a dead end street and had to unhook to back out.
