Towing with Defender

We are considering getting a Defender 110 SE V6 (rated to tow 8,100 lbs) to tow our 2021 16' Airstream Bambi.
Does anyone have experience with this? We have read that using a WD hitch is not advised by Landrover- should this be a concern?
We currently tow with a V6 Nissan Pathfinder (rated to tow 6,000 lbs) using a WD hitch. Is does quite well except with steep hills here in the SE. We hope to travel out west next year and would like a little more power.
Also thinking about Nissan Armada, GMC Yukon.

You should be in good shape towing a 16' with that vehicle. You can safely ignore the "WD is not recommended" comment in the manual IMO (former Land Rover owner talking). This is a holdover from European markets where towing dynamics, speeds are different / tongue weights are less.

There are a few folks on the forum towing with full air suspension land rovers without issue.
