Just an Observation (RV's towing SUV's)

I don't get out on the highway much but today I did a long road trip. I saw about 7 Winabago(sp) today towing SUV's behind them. All were doing 70+MPH. It used to be that the Saturn was the weapon of choice for RV's as I recall because it was one of the few cars that could be flat towed. Are they making the SUV transmission towable now are do you think the owners had them modded?

I know that the 4wd version of the ZJ was able to be flat towed, but the 2wd is not. So I'm guessing that most 4wd models can do so the same. If you could do that back in 95', then I'm guessing you can now.

Most things with a transfer case with a neutral setting and the oil pump driven by the output shaft can be flat towed.

four bolts and your driveshaft is off the rear axle and you can tow as long as you want (2wd anyway)
