Friends of ours have a Motorhome as well as a Jimny (new). He opted for the breakneck-trailer option because of the risk of losing the warranty on the Jimny if it is towed by means of an A-frame!
If you have a new Jimny, contact Suzuki regarding warranty validity if towed by means of A-frame??
Suzuki state in the manual that the Jimny must not be towed.
Be very carefull. There is a lot of people out there that will tell you they towed for 1000's km without problems.
I bought a Grand Vitara that was towed behind Motorhome. 3 weeks after I bought it, the diff and transfer case had to be replaced.
Towed my Jimney behind my wj Paser for 50000 km and sold it 90000km with no problems homemade a frame
Welcome on the forum. I think you are going the low risk route by not towing without removing the propshaft or not towing at all.
New to the forum - only joined today! Sometime ago I read about a motorhome owner towing a jimny and he had fitted lockeable hubs on the rear wheels, so all he did was unlock the 4 wheels when towing.
Alec welcome. Read above what WJ said about towing a Jimmy. I will follow the instructions in the manual.
On short trips less than 50Km I just tow normally but not at highway speeds . On long distance I remove the rear propshaft ,easy enough and never had a problem.
I am so glad this topic is alive again, I am seriously considering a motorhome, and to tow a small vehicle behind. My question is that there are no more "small" vehicle lighter than 750Kg. Thus by law you need assistant brakes or run-in brakes. The dollie option is a solution, just as expensive as a small trailer?
What is really the best way?
Jy kan egter 'n plat kar kry wat 750kg is. Die Jimny is alreeds 920kg. Dalk wil jy net kyk wat is wel beskikbaar.
n Hyndia i10 weeg 700 kg, maar hulle werk op die gross wat meer as die 700 kg is
