I just purchased a class a motor home and want to tow my 2005 town and country. What will I need to do this with 4 wheels down? Do you have all I need and what will it cost? thanks

You can flat tow your 2005 Chrysler Town and Country with automatic transmission behind your Class A motor home.
There are 5 components needed to flat tow a vehicle and those are a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system.
The Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit, # 274-3, will work on your vehicle. You will also need a tow bar like the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, # RM-520.
We have two options for wiring/lights. You can use a diode wiring kit like part # RM-154. This kit wires diodes into your existing wiring in your vehicle and will use the vehicle lights when towing. I have added a link to a video of this kit being installed on a 2006 Jeep Liberty below.
If you do not feel comfortable with wiring or do not want to splice into the wiring on your vehicle, you can use a magnetic or temporary light system like part # C-ATL20A.
You will also need safety cables, # RM-645, in case your tow bar disconnects as well as a lube pump to keep your transmission lubricated. Safety cables are required by law.
You will also want to check with the laws in your state regarding a supplemental braking systems. Some states require a supplemental braking system when flat towing vehicles. I would recommend the Roadmaster InvisiBrake, # RM-8700. I have attached a help article and demonstration videos for you to check out.
Finally, check your vehicle owners manual for limitations such as speed and distance while towing your Town and Country.
