How will you be towing it? 4 down or dolly?

Go to http://www.motorhomemagazine.com/ , select "Dinghy Towing" for most all the info on vehicles that can be towed four-down (towed with a towbar with all wheels on the pavement.).  You didn't find the Kia Soul, then check http://www.remcotowing.com/ and check the application chart for the Kia Soul.  I downloaded the 2011 Dinghy Towing Guide (7.10MB PDF) and the 2011 Soul manual transmission can be towed four-down, but not the automatic.  If you have a manual tranny then you would then need to find out of Blue Ox or Roadmaster, the two main tow bar manufacturers, have base plates for it.

We towed our Soul behind our 35 ft. A class from Southern Illinois to Florida and hubby said he couldn't tell it was there. We used a car dolly. They (the salesman) told us it could be towed 4 wheels down if you pull the fuse. Check your owners manual. Do not rely on the dealers say-so (or mine for that matter).  I even contacted the company and could not get a satisfactory answer.  The spokesperson seemed unsure so we used the dolly and were very happy with the outcome.  I can't wait for winter to go again maybe Texas this time.

This would be a permanent situation.  A dolly is best, right?
