Depends on where you will be towing. If you are never leaving the pavement or at the worst on a gravel road, you would be fine with 2wd. If you are going to someplace that may be muddy, you will be very unhappy without 4 wheel drive. I know 4wd has come in very handy pulling my gooseneck. Even in gravel it will spin the tires trying to back it in some places. Pop in 4wd and get it moving, then drop into 2wd so it will turn.
