Not sure what the weight of the 31' Soverign is, but with the V8 it has a tow rating of 9000lbs with the tow package using a class IV hitch. This is actually the first I have heard of these.

It is basically the Titan underpinnings, with new sheet metal.

I'd check with Nissan. I am towing a 7,300 lb 28' International with a 2011 Infiniti QX56, which has the frame of the Titan. They market the SUV as a tow vehicle -- so I'd make sure that if you're gonna do this that you do the homework before you sign anything.

For sure, you need the specs for that particular vehicle...regardless of it's chassis roots. Height, weight, suspension differences, etc can and probably do change towing recommendations and limitations for the van.
