Can you flat tow a Lincoln Nautilus?

My grandparents want me to tag along for part of their cross-country RV tour. I’m willing to jump on, but I want to split off at some point. Can I flat tow my Lincoln Nautilus or do I have to get them to drop me at an airport?

Going cross-country in an RV sounds like fun! Fortunately, yes, you can flat tow a Lincoln Nautilus.
You’ll need to get some things straight before flat towing a vehicle though, like
how to install a tow bar
for safe and successful towing. And note that you can flat tow a Lincoln Nautilus with both FWD and AWD, but if you’re using a tow dolly, you can only tow a FWD.
Keep the following things in mind, too:
  • Install the tow bar properly
  • Make sure the brake light indicators are functioning
  • Properly install your safety cables
  • Ensure the supplemental braking system is in good working order
Before you hit the road, make sure your vehicle is protected with the proper
