2860DS Chevy 4500 and flat towing Ford Edge

Hi all
We've decided to start flat towing. Neither of our current vehicles can be towed, so we're looking at trading our Rogue for a Ford Edge. I'm not in a position to get my manual at the moment, so I was hoping someone here could provide some feedback. I don't recall the towing limits for the 4500 chassis. If you have experience with this setup, please share details.

Thanks

I assume you're getting the six cylinder version. I don't think the four cylinder version can be flat towed.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Correct. The 2.0L cannot be flat towed.

Edge Towing

What year Edge? The 2019 Dingy guide does not list the Ford Edge as towable.

I think it depends on the year.
