How to Tow Your Car

How to Tow Your Car By Zach Bowman, DriverSide Contributing Editor  At some point in your life, odds are you may need to tow a car . Whether you’re moving to a new state or simply looking to pull something smaller behind the motor home, moving two vehicles with one driver can ease logistical headaches. That is, so long as you have the right equipment and knowledge necessary to get everything where it’s going safely. Some towing methods are better for some vehicles than others, and if you’re not careful you may end up causing thousands of dollars of damage to either the tow rig or the car on the hitch behind you. With just a little preparation and research, you can get where you’re going without a hint of trouble.
 


Before you decide to hook another car behind you, make sure you’re comfortable towing . Pulling any sort of trailer or vehicle requires a different mindset while driving, and you’ll need more time to accelerate, more distance to stop and more space to perform otherwise easy maneuvers like U-Turns. If you can, take some time to practice backing an empty trailer or tow dolly in a parking lot. It may seem confusing at first, but remember that if you place your hand at the bottom of the steering wheel, the trailer will go the direction your hand moves as you turn the wheel – left if you turn the wheel to the right and vice versa. In the end, nothing beats a little bit of seat time.
 
 
Types of Trailers
If you think you’re ready to hit the open road with another vehicle behind you, go ahead and select which type of towing method is best for you. The two most common types of towing setups are a trailer, which keeps all four wheels of the vehicle being towed off the ground, or a tow dolly. Dollies only keep the front wheels off of the road, leaving the rear wheels to roll freely on the pavement behind you. Which method you choose will depend on what kind of vehicle you plan to tow.
 
Trailers tend to be heavy – adding even more strain to your tow vehicle’s work out. But keeping all four of your follow vehicle’s wheels off the ground can greatly reduce the likelihood of mechanical damage. In general, trailers are best for all-wheel drive of rear-wheel drive vehicles. Simply load the car, secure it to the trailer and roll on.
 
Tow dollies are much lighter than full-blown trailers, though since the follow vehicle’s rear wheels roll along at the same speed as the tow vehicle, pulling an all-wheel or rear-wheel drive car or truck means you will have to disengage the prop shaft to the rear wheels or risk severe damage to the transmission or differential. Front-wheel drive cars don’t have this worry because the rear-wheels simply follow along under normal circumstances anyway.
