My wife and I just purchased our first RV, a 2009 Bluebird Wanderlodge and want to tow a vehicle behind it. I already have a 2008 Honda Element 4WD Automatic Transmission. So, I'm researching to find out if I can tow this vehicle. I know the "official" line is that it can't be towed. However, there seems to be a lot of evidence to the contrary.
I noticed that a couple of folks posted that they are towing 2008 Honda Elements, but the posts are a couple of years old. Can anyone that has experience towing an Element, newer than 2005, with 4WD and Automatic Transmission, please let me know how things are working out for you?
I've read all over the place that the Element and CRV share drive trains. However, I talked to my local Honda dealer and asked of the 2008 models of Element and CRV share a drive train. The answer is NO. I also asked if the transmission is the same on a 2005 Element and a 2008 Element. The answer is that the Part Numbers are different. This makes me think there are at least some minor changes. I intentionally did not mention towing the vehicle behind a motor home because I didn't want to sway his answers.
Thanks in advance,
