How To Pull 2003 Toyota Camry With Automatic Transmission Behind A Motorhome


I just bought a Jayco Melbourne L with the Mercedes chassis. I have a 2003 Toyota Camry automatic 4cyl. What kind of towing setup would be best to tow car behind RV?


Expert Reply:

According to Toyota the 2003 Toyota Camry automatic is not designed to be flat towed behind a motor home with all 4 wheels on the ground to avoid damage to the vehicle's transmission. The only way to flat tow the Toyota Camry automatic is with a tow dolly.

I recommend the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes part # DM9713093 because of it's disc brake system. There is not a need to add an electric brake controller to the motor home like with the other options. The Kar Kaddy is pre-wired so the dolly is all you need to tow the Camry behind the motor home compared to the other options that require extra wiring. The Demco Kar Kaddy has a 4-pole flat so you can use Pollak 7 Pole to 4 Way Connector Adapter # PK12716 to plug the Kar Kaddy into the motor home's 7-way. This option is actually less costly compared to flat towing with a tow bar because you need less parts.
