My 2016 CX-5 AWD...

My 2016 CX-5 AWD is fine, we love it. But I have a question the we need a definitive answer to. We have purchased a 38' RV and will soon be traveling with it full-time. We were planning to tow our Mazda behind it but have be given a different answer every time we ask the question, including at our local Mazda dealer. It looks like our AWD Mazda shouldn't be towed either front wheels up, or 4 wheels down. If that is correct, if we traded it in for a 2WD would it be possible to tow it? We had a CX7 first, then switched over to the CX5 when they discontinued the 7. I love my Mazda and really hope that I don't have to exchange it for something else.

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

EXcellent!

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Mazda2?

2016

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mazda2 yourself? What have you tried so far?

As stated above, we don't have a mechanical problem with the car, we just need an answer from someone who knows the Mazda CX5 as to whether or not we can tow it behind a large RV motorhome.

Is there a huge difference between the AWD and the 2 WD? We will be driving the car back to New England during the winter months.
