Which Ford Vehicles Can Be Flat-Towed

Guide to Flat-Towing Ford Vehicles

Ford Flat Tow

Exploring the outdoors with an RV is a liberating experience, but navigating large vehicles through Tampa FL and other areas can be cumbersome. For easier mobility, especially for quick trips to nearby locations, many RV users consider flat-towing their vehicles. As a Ford owner, you might wonder if your vehicle can be flat-towed. Below, Veterans Ford explains what flat-towing is and which Ford models are suitable for this purpose.

Understanding Flat-Towing

Also known as dinghy towing or four-wheel towing, flat-towing involves towing a vehicle with all four wheels on the ground. This method is favored by many RV owners because it does not require heavy equipment like tow dollies or trailers, making it a convenient option for traveling with a vehicle. However, it's important to ensure that your Ford model is compatible with flat-towing to avoid potential damage.
