I found this forum when searching the internet for a VIN decoder.

After a little research, I discovered that the new AWD Trailblazer is dinghy towable. That is, with a towbar, it can be towed with all four tires on the ground.

I test drove an RS that didn't have all the options I wanted, but was very impressed with the 3 cylinder engine. Very peppy!

I'll be dragging my new Scarlet AWD RS with the four convenience packages behind my motorhome...at least after it arrives. Placed a deposit 5-8. now 5-22, still shown as "in transit".

FYI...towability.
FWD front on dolly or trailer. Can NOT tow 4 wheels on ground
AWD four wheels on ground or trailer. Can NOT tow on dolly front up or rear up.

Thanks for posting about the RS being towable because I'm looking forward to towing my RS behind a motor home.... Can't wait! :)

I am taking mine to be the guinea pig for a baseplate. After that, this company will be marketing them to the public. I’ll be going sometime late June.

Assuming yours is AWD.
Yes mine is AWD.... Can you let me know how you set it up behind the motorhome when you get to that point.... Got to think if I can put my Harley on a lift between the motorhome and the RS..... hmmmmm 🤔🤔

Motorcycle lifts and towing is done a lot. I don’t, so I’m not aware of the intricacies. A lot can be learned at RVforums.com and iRV2.com.
We are scheduled for June 22-26 to be fitted for the towbar baseplate adapter. I will surely be posting my experience here and RVForums.com.

@DPJake I have no experience or connection to either of these vendors. A simple "Google Search" for motorhome motorcycle lift. If it were me, I would probably concentrate on the hydraulic units over any cable/winch units. Probably more expensive, but as they say, "You get what you pay for". Cables become problematic.

Thanks! 😀
It's about half the cost that I paid for my Harley but I just can't leave it behind 🙂
It looks really good, out of the way of the tow vehicle, no one can steal it up that high too.... I love it! ❤😁
