2013 Cayenne diesel TV

Hello everyone,
We are seriously considering a 28 International TB. Love the floorplan, but hesitating as our diesel TV max is 7716 (with 650 miles/tank).
Other TV option is a 2007 Tundra with what would be obviously horrendous gas mileage.
Do we need to scale down our AS hopes?
Sandy

No, but you need to pay attention to setup, and may need to reinforce the hitch. Read up on Can Am.

IDK how much a 28 Int weighs but if you look at the RennList forum you can see people towing all sorts of goodness with the Cayenne.

I've been seriously considering a Cayenne S or GTS myself for towing and daily life.

The Cayenne is a seriously good tow vehicle. As has already been said, the hitch and weight distribution need to be properly set up to ensure you don't exceed rear axle weights. Your Cayenne is as close to the perfect tow vehicle for your 28 as you can get.

We have towed our 27FB many thousands of trouble free, comfortable miles.

Your asking for a lot of "opinions" with that question.! There are a "few" folks here who seem to "feel" safe with sports SUV's pulling AS's on this thread, if you look around; many modified by Canadian firm Can/AM as suggested earlier in this post. And, depending on your type travel, you may be fine with going that route. Personally, not interested in "making" a sports SUV into a "tow vehicle" it was not designed for towing an 8k# trailer. You would be modifying hitch to support ~1000+ or so, tongue weight of your 28' AS. There are many choices out there in large SUV's or trucks that would give you much more capability without making modifications, and have many have built in features designed to pull larger trailers. In the end, it's up to you on how much you want to spend to "modify" that Porsche, and how safe it will be in the end while towing at 65+ mph with 7500-8000lbs behind you. I read lots of posts by happy folks who have gone that way. Good luck.

Tundra, or more. I believe TV selection should be based on worse case scenarios. If one tows enough, the worst case scenario (or something very close to it) will occur.

Hi Sandy,
IMO, I believe that your Porsche can tow better that a Tundra, but rather than listening to my opinion or those of other well meaning people who tow travel trailers, ask somebody who has actual understanding of the of the physics of center of gravity, forces applied to the receiving hitch, maneuverability, and real world testing of towing rigs. Andy Thompson at Can Am in London Ontario as well as the rest of his staff can give you useful information for you to decide how to proceed. Good luck and best wishes for your travels!

Steve

Just me. It not sure I’d want to tow with a Porsche.

That said sounds like you got some solid advice, I’d give a call to the outfitter mentioned above because all the rest of us are speculating
