As a new timer (!), can anyone please advise on the suitability of the X-Trail to tow a medium size pop-top, say in the mid size Jayco.
It is most confussing to try and sort out all the specifications in all the manufacture's h'books.
It is better to hear from those who have experience.

Thanks for the chance of a question.

You could also ask this question on the Caravanners forum.

Good people there too!

Truckster has it right.

But if that's the market you're looking it - to the serious 4wd guys thta sounds crap - but over in Soft Roader it's best of class...

(unless you think a 1.2:1 low actually deserves the name)

PS Vitara does not get included in Soft-Roader - we have a proper transfer case.

I'd go a used Frontera if you want a blend of style and capabiltiy - or a Landrover Freelander.

PS Sell the Landrover before the first major service.............

we bought a ford escape to tow our trailer on camping trips because it has a 150kw V6.also if you are going on the beach an auto (which is all the escape comes in)will be better, as you have no low range,because the torque converter does all the work on take off and the risk off spinning your wheels and getting bogged is less than if you have a manual.
