2011 Land Rover RR HSE

First Time Posting: Eyeing various AS's from 23'-25', but have concerns as to whether or not my current vehicle can do the job? Obviously lots of factors to consider, I just am uneasy as to whether my current vehicle is a good starting point? Any links or insights anyone can point me to is welcome!

We are new to towing and now have 2600 miles towing our 2014 Serenity 25FB with our 2008 Range Rover HSE. Our rig has the OEM Westfalia hitch which is rated for tongue weight of 770 lbs, but the RR manual says 550 lbs. We have the Blue OX Sway Pro with 1,000 lbs bars. The RR has no problem handling the trailer, but it is at its max when you get into the mountains. Long grades are 45 mph at 3,000 - 3,500 RPM. The RR handled a three mile 17% grade in third and second gear up and one mile 19% grade down in first and second gear without issue and no additional temp on the gauge.

So far I am happy with the rig, very stable, no sway, great ride but would go to a 3/4-ton truck before attempting the Alaska Highway or Rockies.

There are people with experience, but it is a long weekend and they're probably out camping. Be patient and I'm sure they'll chime in.
