I've never towed a car on my trailer with anything but my 3/4 ton Dodge Cummins truck and it has pretty much done it with minimal effort. The problem is that I only use it for towing once or twice a year and don't really need it for anything else. I'm thinking of downsizing to a mid-sized SUV but I'm wodering about their real abilities to tow a car trailer. The car and trailer weigh maybe 5500 pounds so a towing capacity of anything over that should theoretically be adequate but I'm wondering if those ratings are real. Can a mid-sized SUV comfortably tow a car on a trailer? I'm guessing the engines can move the weight, but what about suspensions, brakes, etc? Any thoughts on how close to the rated towing capacity you really want to get?
