Flat towing 4wd gmc

Does anyone here flat tow a GMC Canyon 4wd? I just bought a 2017 and plan to tow 4 wheels down. Is there anything special I should know . I have a2013 sightseer 33c.

Get the truck manual and look under the "towing behind a motorhome" section. That should answer all your questions.

Not sure if you're new to flat towing or just inquiring about your specific combination. I have a Chevy Equinox and the manual says to remove one of the fuses. If your manual states this, get a switch installed as it is a lot easier. Roadmaster makes them and so do other manufacturers. Otherwise, have fun and enjoy.

Here is link to a list of vehicles that can be towed flat down: Downloadable Dinghy Guides | Motorhome Magazine

A 4x4 GMC Canyon should be able to be put into neutral in the transfer case. My 2009 Colorado can be. Also the steering wheel is not locked with the ignition off and the key removed, so I put the transfer case in neutral and remove the key when towing. I have towed it about 30,000 miles in the last 3 years this way.
