discovery,globetrotter choosing an outfit

I,m planning a year trip around europe and have got to the idea of a late 60s 20ft globetrotter and a suitable tow vehicle
As i live in scotland the choices are limited (as is the experience of towing airstreams!)
Some say the discovery is not up to the toungue weight, some that the jeep grand cherokee can only take 140 lbs etc etc

would really appreciate any advice or experience on this
also any hints on buying globe from uk

many thnks Wilson

A US Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.7 V8 is rated 6500# & 750# tounge weight. The 4.0 I6 reduces the towing capacity to about 5000#. Either should work for you. I tow a 2002 25ft Safari with a 99 Grand Cherokee with no problems. The trailer weighs a max of 6500 fully loaded with 3 sewing machines, etc.
