Have towed a GMC Acadia with our 390BH 340 rated at 5,000# for approx 6,000 miles now. The Acadia's curb weight is ~ 4,700#. We try to keep it low on fuel and the coach low on water when towing. Have now went over Loveland pass 3 times and Monarch pass once in Colorado while towing - absolutely no problem with power...obviously, you'll lose some speed, but overall you're still passing many of the trucks. We use a Blue-Ox tow bar with a U.S. Brake system in the Acadia - a little pricey, but a nice system. We've continually checked the integrity of the system...welds, etc. - no problems.

I have pulled my Grand Cherokee 10000 miles now. Same weight. I do not know it is back there. Only effect is 1 mph less when towing.

I am assuming (I know) that you meant the only effect was 1 MPG less when towing. Am I correct?

correction

Yes you are correct. Thanks for the catch. I get 1 MPG less when towing. Sometimes the fingures do not type what I mean.
