"Thanks to Andy at Can Am we will be towing a 25' Flying Cloud with our Santa Fe. Give them a call it will be well worth your time."

Hey there SRP. If you have some experience towing the 25 with a Santa Fe feel free to let us know the details. Otherwise lets keep the name calling out of this friendly discussion.

Thank you Canadians for the response. Don't think that I would be as polite. Being new to the forums, I would suggest a thread that would just be for negative comments. UKT would love to post the things that Can Am did but I know that that would result in more negative comments. Thinking that I will just stay away from the forums !!!!

Silver Cloud, no need to avoid the forums. Just understand that there are those who like to speak from no real experience about these trailer/vehicle setups. On the other side of the coin, many of us are interested in any configuration that doesn't involve a big pickup or SUV.

I appreciate how you feel because I've taken my fair share of cr*p from some of the less well informed participants on the forum, but you shouldn't let them put you off posting here. Remember, there's not a single person that contributes here that has the towing knowledge and experience that currently resides with Can-Am RV. Sure, everyone is entitled to their own opinion but few, if any, are based in the kind of expertise that Andy T has.

You can PM me the details if you like, though, because I'm interested in Andy's solutions.

For sure Silver Cloud. Glad to see you posting. There is a great bunch of Airstreamers here. There is just a small minority that always seem to get out of the wrong side of the bed. Hang in here.

I tow with a big SUV but I'd love to see the details, too. Please do post them, Silver Cloud. There are plenty of experienced non-newbies on these Forums that can provide you some air cover.

Definitely don't feel like you need to avoid the Forums, though. People have strong opinions about everything, and this is one of those hot-button topics that comes up fairly regularly. When I saw the thread title, I grabbed my popcorn and got ready for the show.

As heated as THIS topic gets though, you wouldn't BELIEVE the venom that comes out when folks begin advocating their preferred method of polishing aluminum. Talk about nasty!

If you all think towing a AS 25 with a Santa Fe is safe - more power to you

trailer weighs 5600 lbs

Santa Fe tow rating 3500 lbs



to me it's a recipe for disaster

Are you an expert ???
Did you look at the HP, torque and transmission, modified and reinforced receiver, HD transmission cooler, sway bars etc, etc or did you just look at a number ?? Look at many of the SUV's out there and you will see that with comparable #'s, some have tow ratings of 5500 lbs and higher. I feel safer with my properly installed equipment than I would with a factory installed one on a lot of pickup trucks. You need to go to a seminar put on by Can-Am RV and see what happens with some of those !! But maybe your minds are made up without knowing all of the facts.

How do you know whether it's safe or not? You know nothing of the Santa Fe's set up.

And there's the issue isn't it? Self-proclaimed experts with no handle on how any particular TV is set up.

Good on you, Silver Cloud. I'll bet your Santa Fe tows brilliantly; I know that my minivan (with the 3,500 lb tow rating) hauls my 7,000 lb International with ease.
