Doe it not say in the owners manual that they can be towed up to a certain 
speed...something like 30 mph ?? They would have said higher if it was ok to 
do so. I looked at towing my P6B behind a motorhome with a tow dolly...I 
looked it up at that time and found out it needed to have the drive shaft 
disconnected. I even considered installing a drive shaft that can be engaged 
by a lever control while not being towed.

 My mercedes was also not able to be towed for the same reasons...they need 
oil circulating while the gears are operating.
