Buick Encore: Towing the Vehicle / Recreational Vehicle Towing

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Vehicle Care / Towing the Vehicle / Recreational Vehicle Towing

Recreational vehicle towing means towing the vehicle behind another vehicle, such as behind a motor home. The two most common types of recreational vehicle towing are known as dinghy towing and dolly towing. Dinghy towing is towing the vehicle with all four wheels on the ground. Dolly towing is towing the vehicle with two wheels on the ground and two wheels up on a device known as a dolly.

Here are some important things to consider:

  • Before towing the vehicle, become familiar with the local laws that apply to recreational vehicle towing. These laws may vary by region.
  • What is the towing capacity of the towing vehicle? Be sure to read the tow vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.
  • What is the distance that will be traveled? Some vehicles have restrictions on how far and how long they can tow.
  • Is the proper towing equipment going to be used? See your dealer or trailering professional for additional advice and equipment recommendations.
  • Is the vehicle ready to be towed? Just as preparing the vehicle for a long trip, make sure the vehicle is prepared to be towed.
