Thanks you for allowing me to help you with this concern today. The answer is no that you cannot tow your Sonata behind you RV unless all 4 wheels are OFF the ground. This is per Hyundai as stated in your Owners manual. Please don't be too mad as almost EVERY auto manufacturer says the same thing. It basically comes down to liability and if a problem arises from doing this, Hyundai will deny any warranty coverage. Here is their stated position...

That being said, your local RV dealer and accessories department may tell you otherwise.
