Has anyone modified their hitch receiver at all? I'm well aware of the debate between at 770lb tongue weight stamped on the receiver vs a 550lb tongue weight in the manual. I have an LR4 with the v8 and will be picking up a 25ft Ocean Breeze in a few weeks. Trying to decide if I should go with the Curt bolt on hitch receiver.

Baby and the Beast towed by a LR/RR

June 1, 2014.

Land Rover/Range Rover towing a 30 foot (?), meets 23 foot Safari towed by 5.7L Tundra.

She was traveling about 55mph going north on Highway 93 in Nevada. She was living full time in the trailer in Arizona and towing back home in Idaho. She was familiar with the Airforums and I told her... one day... I would post these pictures.

Anyone may want to debate the issue, but here is the proof. Maybe the older Airstreams are lighter at the hitch... but if you are not in a hurry... I am a firm believer it is possible.

Being a Rover person for many years, 30' not good. Death of the Rover w/out doubt.


Safe travels and best regards

I have both but unfortunately the 2.25 in the rover can't even get it up to highway speed by itself, let alone towing a trailer...

LR4 Towing 25ft

We picked up our 2007 25ft SS 'Ocean Breeze' a few weekends ago.

Towing with a 2013 LR4 and a blue ox. First trip was nearly 350 miles and it towed great. 10-11 mpg also which was a surprise. Prodigy P3 brake controller as well.

Disco pulling FC27FB?

The FC27FB tongue weight is 791, the Disco 2019 limit is 771 (I find this information varies depending on the source). You think is safe? Would you use anti-sway bars with the WDH?

I towed this RV for 2,000 miles with an LR4, was not aware of the tongue weight issue back then (my first RV) and had no issues, even crossing from Denver to Dillon on I70.

I never followed-up on this thread... we did survive Alaska, with the only issue of the plastic cover of the 7-way connector falling off and needing to have the whole towing electronics receiver replaced by Far North Rover.

But on the way back through Northern BC, we also hit a freak ice storm and ended up towing over multiple mountain passes in the snow.. ending up with 3" of ice all over the front of the Airstream which we ended up chipping off carefully with an Ice Axe. There was also a stretch of uphill road which was iced and snowed over and we had absolutely no problems starting the trailer from standstill up the hill. The 4WD system of Land Rover is ridiculous, even with the stock Pirelli Scorpion tires.

The short wheelbase of the Rover really lets us maneuver and park into the tightest of spots. One of the attached photos have us parked in a tight 25' spot in Jumbo Rocks, rated for 21' trailers due to a very sharp turn, and we have no issues getting around campgrounds with 23' max trailer length (such as the Redwoods).

Currently at 51,000+ miles with our factory ordered 2017 Sport Supercharged.

Jumbo Rocks is one of my favorite campgrounds. Cant wait to get back out there. Need to get back climbing again. Last month we stayed at Black Rock campground and surprising it was really nice. You camp is a thick forest of Joshua trees.

So I can finally share some experience after a few trips with the 2019 Discovery and the Flying cloud 19 Airstream:
After having towed with and without the Blue Ox Sway Pro bars installed, I can say that at least to my feeling, the car tows better without it. Much smother ride, no sway and natural fell. This weekend was really windy and other trailers were suffering down the highway, but we could go 60 mph with no sway. The only thing is that the ball moves more inside the couplers and you fell it when pulling out or braking.
I am sure this combination can pull a much bigger trailer, as a matter of fact you have to be careful when pulling the 19 because it is easy to go over 70, you don't even notice the trailer behind sometimes. Anyhow, we are afraid that in the disgraceful event of an accident being over the factory limits can become a liability issue, and that is something to be consider. We have been towing over the limits with our Flex for 3 years, so no pointing fingers at all on my comment, just thought for those considering it as we did.
We have a 23 on order and we are not going to use the weight distribution hitch, but we might consider some kind of simple anti sway for additional safety.

If you feel the ball rattling in the coupler, you may have the wrong size ball. I would check to make sure. Please don’t ask me how I know about this.

My wife and I tow our 2018 23CB with our 2007 Range Rover HSE. We recently migrated for the summer from Southern California to the Pacific Northwest traveling the full length of the Oregon coast on Hwy 101 staying in Oregon State Park campgrounds along the way. The route and campgrounds are spectacular. The Range Rover has the creature comforts for travel and tows perfectly. The attached photo is from our detour to Lake Almanor.

It is not rattling, as a matter of fact i always use the tongue jack to verify that the coupler is holding the ball.
What I fell now is that on a fast start, like incorporating to the road with traffic and accelerating hard, the ball makes a "clong" noise and you fell a little hit back. The opposite happens in the event of a strong brake....
During the ride it fells normal, and if you are smooth operating as well...

Might consider adding a clamp to the receiver to take up the slack and reduce the chance it can make noise.
