My husband and I are looking to buy different Tow Vehicle and are considering purchasing a Series 2 02 -04 Land Rover Discovery. Another option is a 00-03 Range Rover or a Toyota Sequoia. Our Airstream is a 65 Overlander. We are open to suggestions.We do want an SUV tho as we have 3 dogs that travel with us.
I've been around Land Rovers most of my life and worked for Land Rover North America. I love them but don't recommend them to others.The Range Rover and Discovery are very high maintanance, expensive to repair and not very good as tow vehicles.
The sticker on the rear window of a friends Land Rover says it all for me:
"The parts falling off of this vehicle are of the finest British manufacture"

If an American manufacturer made a vehicle of the dimentions of the Land Rover, people here would insist that it wasn't capable of towing a Bambi, and wouldn't even consider it. But because it is imported................
This is about the only Land Rover that can tow about 7500 lbs and with a 2.5L diesel it would probably be a bit of a dog getiing on to the highway. It's a Defender 130 Crew Cab High capacity pick-up. Put the Ford 6.0 or GM Duramax in it and you've got yourself a nice vehicle. 130" is the wheel base.And look with the covered area you've just enough room for a generator
