Can I flat tow this vehicle?

Can I flat tow a 2000 Ford Ranger, 2WD, standard trans. with 4.0 engine? Any limits on milage or speed while towing? I want to tow the Ranger behind a motorhome without disconnecting the driveshaft, if possible. Anyone out there with experience or knowledge about this?

I'm not totally sure, but i believe you can't flat tow unless you have a way of putting all 4 wheels in neutral after the transmission (so that the gears inside the tranny dont turn). im not 100% sure on that though, someone who actually knows what they're talking about will chime in soon. lol

you can do that by removing the drive shafts.
