Can I Tow with Mercedes E320 CDI diesel car?
I have a '69 Tradewind Land Yacht hitch 490 lbs, Weight 4340. I had my trailer towed to my backyard as a guest house. Now I would like to take it on the road.
I was looking at diesel trucks for sale after being advised that the Toyota Tacoma may be underpowered.
I saw a beautiful Mercedes E320 cdi diesel on the internet. The attraction is 27-40 mpg. I searched Google about towing with a Mercedes E320 cdi diesel car. There are cheap looking hitches for sale for this car. It also appears Mercedes cars are used to tow often in Europe and can be fitted with hitches at the factory--obviously not an option here with a used car.
The torque of the engine is better than with the Toyota Tacoma V6 I was considering originally. I want something that gets good gas mileage and is easy to drive for the rest of the year, given I only plan to tow the Airstream from its home in the backyard once in a while.
Anyone had any experience with getting a suitable hitch put on a Mercedes?
