325 towing

I just bought a 1985 325, and I love it.
What is the heaviest vehicle I can tow (safely) wheels down.

Always tow something that can tow you...

A Radio Flyer wagon.

IIRC the max tow rating on the 325 is 2,000 lbs.

If it's a diesel, forget it.

Don't tow anything heavier than what your hitch is rated for. They are not very heavy and are not attached to the coach very well. They can be modified easily to tow a much greater weight.

We modified ours and have towed a Jeep Wrangler weighing about 3500 lbs. for several years now without any problems. Our coach is 29 foot without a tag axle.

Be careful not to overpower your coaches ability to STOP what you are towing!!!!
