I know nothing about RV's. I did see a cool one this past summer in Tennessee? I can't remember. It had a car inside of it. A smart car that was stored in the rear side of it. Don't know if that's something new, but I thought it was cool.

Lol, toad......I thought I saw/heard everything-

I seen a guy on I-20 I believe it was, between Shreveport and Monroe LA, towing one. It was FN4 (vivid teal) king cab, and I believe an auto.

Only reason I think I remember it was an auto was I know, as an auto owner myself, they can't be towed interstate speeds with all 4 on the ground. Book/Specs say like no further than 20 miles under 35 mph (or something like that).

Towed is the correct way to use the term.
Driveshaft has to be pulled before towing on all 4 wheels.

Should be no issue. Leave the steering unlocked. Put the trans in neutral, and go.
Tow bar, lighting kits, and all that should be available at an RV dealer.

I towed my 4wd truck behind my '77 travco with no brake assist, and had no issues. You probably won't even know a 2wd is there.

Depending on which state you plan on being in some have laws about having break away brake system installed on the toad. Also a good thing is to have a remote tpms on it also that way you will know if a tire goes flat without seeing it become a BBQ.
