Who tows?

Post by chriscousins » Mon Dec 17, 2018 8:32 pm

If so, what set up do you use?

I’ve stuck to Jeep Cherokee XJs for the last 15 years or so as the diesel ones are rated to tow 2,500kgs and the 4.0 litre petrol ones 3,500kgs.

They’ve towed some heavy stuff over long distance (500 miles a day not uncommon) and been superb.

Starting to ponder whether anything else is good enough to replace them.

I've towed. I've got an alloy low bed twin axle trailer.

Now.. I've done xantia hdi towing xantia..
I've done Xm 2.1td auto towing Xm 2.1td
Ive also done C5 towing bare shells of Xm or xantias as below. All the citroens coped increadbly well.. None feeling overweight even though obviously I am.
If I had to choose C5 with later 2.0 16v hdi 138.

However.. All citroens are capped at 1600kg max I'm sure.. Which is a shame as they are more then capable of taking more..

However with more stricter towing laws I'll tow less.. Will restore my trailer and possibly sell it..
