The Towability Committee is part of the Service Development Technical Steering Committee that reports to the Motor Vehicle Council (MVC). The Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports related to the design, development and testing of vehicles to allow for damage free towing, transporting and recovery of light and medium duty vehicles. These documents assist light and medium duty passenger vehicle manufacturers (OEMs) and the towing and recovery equipment manufacturers.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
