Tow Guide

The RVUSA Tow Guide will help you find the perfect RV trailer that you can tow with your vehicle! Enter your vehicle by selecting the year, make, model and trim from the drop-downs below. Once your vehicle is identified you can further narrow down your results by choosing the appropriate engine and/or axle ration, if applicable. Multiple results may be returned in our tow guide - in that case simply look for the result that best matches the package or features of your vehicle.


Disclaimer: When calculating your vehicle's max towing capacity, you must account for: trailer weight, passenger weight, added accessories, liquids in tanks, and any cargo and camping gear you have loaded. For this tow guide we have allowed for 1,000 lbs for trailers over 8,000 lbs, 750 lbs for trailers under 8,000 lbs, and 500 lbs for trailers under 5,000 lbs for average Cargo Weight. You must determine if these allowances are adequate for your situation. Always confirm your vehicles towing capacity and hitch capacity directly from your vehicle's manufacturer before purchasing or towing a trailer. The decision to operate your vehicle and tow a trailer is ultimately your responsibility. In the event that there is no available data for your specific trailer and/or vehicle, please consult with the manufacturer in order to get the most accurate information. If your specific vehicle is not listed, please contact us for assistance.
