Would it be easier to just get a two wheel car tower since I have front wheel drive?
Expert:  Robert replied 10 months ago.
OK Showing the RV has a 5K towing capacity and the saab range is 3,175 to 3,550 so you should be good on weight. I am also showing the manual transmission can be towed, click HERE to view. Few things on this, you will need a good tow bar and the wiring from the tow vehicle to RV will need to be wired, it will matter if the RV and tow vehicle have combined or separate brake lighting, many times you have to add a diode kit for that. I would strongly recommend letting a RV shop install the tow bar and vehicle bracket and confirm the wiring, for all that it is about 6 hours of labor. The automatic can not be flat towed, only the manual transmission.. Hope this helps some... Robert
