Re: [DML] Towing the DMC

Jeeps are another popular one with RV'ers.
It won't overheat while it being turned is what I was told by my buddy who
is now retired and touring. I don't remember if it can disengage or what the
deal was, just normal vehicles the tranny will turn and the fluid will heat
up and burn inside.
Just pickup an '85 Toyota 4x4 to tow your time machine and put it on a
trailer. They are a beautiful little truck, goes with the theme, and you can
find some in great shape.
