Wondering How Much RV You Can Tow?

If you're interested in buying a towable RV but you're either not sure how much you can tow with your vehicle, or whether you need to buy a new truck just to tow a travel trailer, let us help answer your questions.

Many towables are now light weight and can be towed with Mini Vans, Crossover Utility Vehicles and SUV's.  These include Folding Pop Up Campers, A-Frame Trailers, Expandable Trailers, and even traditional Travel Trailers.  To help you determine what you can tow with your vehicle, we've included a list of information you should have at hand about your vehicle, plus we've linked Trailer Life's Annual Tow Guides for quick reference.  Ready?  Let's get started . . .

About Your Vehicle:

You'll need to know, at minimum, the following information about your vehicle.  We've used a Jeep Cherokee for our example:

  • Year, Make and Model:  2014 Jeep Cherokee
  • Engine Size and Type:  5.7L V8 (Usually on the outside of your vehicle. Can also be found on the window sticker.)
  • Transmission Type:  Automatic, 5 Speed
  • Rear Axle Ratio:  3.73   (On your window sticker. Sometimes also found inside the driver's door panel.)

Refer To Our Guides

Find Trailer Life Tow Guides here for vehicle years 1999 - 2017.  Refer to the appropriate guide for your vehicle.  You might also want to try this Trailer Life Tow Ratings Calculator to estimate the trailer weight you can tow.  Keep in mind, that all of these tools should be considered reference only to help determine what you can tow.  They'll give you a pretty good indication, but you should always refer to your vehicle manufacturer for the final determination.

Search Our Inventory

Once you've determined how much you can tow, we've made it easy to find the trailers that fall into your weight category.  In our example above, the Jeep Cherokee has a tow limit of 7200.  Look at the search filter on your left, then find the 'Weight" and click + to see the different weight ranges.  I select everything between 3500 and 8500 lbs and voila, I have a list of all the RVs that fall into my weight range -- less a few that fall into the over 7200 lb category.

Our team of RV professionals is also here to help you determine how much you can tow.  Contact Us or drop and we'll answer all of your questions.
