    I am thinking of buying an Amphicar to tow ben=hind a motorhome.

    In neutral will it tow 4 wheels down? Anyone seen or done this?

    There is also a possible hitch that will let it tow 2 wheels down or
    I can use a tow dolly.

    This will be my dream of having a boat and car along while RVing but
    I don't want to use a trailer.

    Thanks, Bik

    Bik,

    From all accounts, you should always tow your Amphi with all 4 off
    the ground. There are also some good ideas on strapping one down on
    the trailer properly as well.

    You wouldn't want to be wearing out parts unless your driving her.
    They really weren't designed to take that punnishment.

    I am sure Bilgy or Dave(s) could elaborate more.

    I prefer to carry the car on a trailer, all 4 wheels up. But if I recall,
    I think Hugh tows his all 4 down. Two of my amphi's came with tow bars for
    towing all 4 wheels down, but as I said, I've never done it that way.
    Carrying it is much easier in all ways.

    As for the tool to get the prop shafts off the transmission, I forget the
    exact size, but Hugh sells it his catalog.
