What to tow

We have a 2016 Berkshire XL 40 BH 380 HP. We love the coach and like others we have had some problems but we were able to get them repaired with no problems. We are currently towing a 2008 Chevy HHR. we have never had any issues with towing or the car but this last week my dear wife informed me that we are going to be selling this car to our grand daughter. ( I am sure I will end up giving it to her.) So my question to all of you that tow a vehicle what 2018 or 2019 year models are you towing and are you satisfied with that model. I have a 10,000 lb Blue Ox tow bar so the weight is not an issue. Thanks

We also had an HHR. There is so much Room in the back of it that we had to get a pick up to replace it and keep the storage Room We love our Chevy Colorado.Click image for larger version

Rented an HHR when they first came out and took it down to Branson during the annual car show. I managed to get in line with the parade of cars and nobody noticed and you could see people pointing and yelling..."That's Cool" !! One person came up to us and asked who we had build it for us.

Jeep has been my choice, easy and offers ability to explore more when you get there

Note there was a correction to the 2019 Towing Guide: The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus CAN BE FLAT TOWED/4down when equipped with a 2.7 liter engine. The AWD curb weight is 4529 pounds. The FWD curb weight is 4341 pounds. And you can't exceed 65mph when towing.
