Acura MDX as a tow vehicle

Hello everyone, I'm planning to buy or rent a Bambi to tow with our MDX. Any advice or opinions? Thanks Blake

Give Andy Thomson a call at Can-Am Rv. He'll give you the best advise related to towing with that vehicle.

Acura MDX

We have the factory tow package on our MDX and have had no problem towing a 19FB even over the Cascade mountains & Sierra Nevada mountains.

Saw a MDX pulling a 16ft this week. It seemed to handle it fine

We have been towing a '16 Bambi with our Honda Pilot (similar to an MDX) and it does fine. We are well below the factory tow and hitch weight ratings.

I pull a 1978 Ambassador 28' with a Lexus RX350. Towed from Ohio to west coast and back last summer. Excellent tow vehicle. It was set up by CanAm RV. I believe it is a similar vehicle to your MDX.
