So yes, Winnie shows 5,000 lbs and then they put this tiny asterisk on there that you have to look at weights, etc. To get 5,000lbs of towing you would have to take 800 lbs out of your Solera so that you trade off cargo weight for towing weight. We just felt like the 4,200 was more realistic and not misleading.
Thanks BClemens. Does that change only apply to the 2014 models or is my 2013 Solera set-up the same way, so it could tow #4200 as well? Thanks!
