I was wondering if anyone could give me the specs for towing with a land rover and a range rover. I am looking to purchase one of these but am a little bit hesistant of whether of not it could tow a open trailer and a car. Thank you in advance.
Just a note on that 7700lb figure. That is the rating for low range, not high or standard. (I actually thought it was 7200lbs, that is what the D2 is anyway) Regardless though, I tow over 6500lbs all the time without a single issue. Just make sure the trailer is setup correctly and the load is balanced correctly, you'll be good to go.
Its a 1997 travel trailer. From what the owner said and what I saw when i looking at it. It has its own receiver hitch type thing. Then the trailer hooks the the ball on that then on that same receiver there are 2 smaller balls that 2 bars from the trailer hooks on too. So basically there is one main big ball the 2 smaller balls that "stabilizer bars" hook to.
I would be really surprised if a 30 footer that new didn't have electric or surge brakes you might want to double check that. If it does than with a decent sway control set up you will be ok I would think in the end with towing that. I'd still go for a 3/4 truck though lol. There would be noithing worse then spending all that cash only to figure out you can't stand the set up.
If it is a 97 trailer that is not homemade then it has brakes. Easy way to tell is crawl under.. you will see drum brakes with wires going in. What is the plug like... if it is a 6 prong, 7 prong etc it will have brakes.. 4 pin is the no brake wiring.
Also does it have the emergency brake catch? a little cable with a pull loop that if pulled locks the brakes.. another way to tell.
Here is my parents Rover with their old set up... and this is all I would do with it weight wise. It did many miles all over the states, but if it was more I don't think it would have been as enjoyable!
