I have spoken to the caravan club tester who has towed a twin wheel 1560kg caravan over a 100miles plus route and he was impressed.The caravan club report was not due out for a couple of months (that was about 3 weeks ago) The car did not have selflevelling suspension and only dipped 1 inch with the caravan coupled. based on what he told me I am picking up a KX3 auto at the end of the month (ex demo) andwill betowing a SenatorLouisiana twin wheeler. hope this helps

Just come back from Wales (300Miles round trip) towing a senatorLouisiana 1680 Kg the car towedfaultlessly, plenty of hills which where not a problem.the MPG was 23.6 towing but I think this may improve as the mileage increases(currently 3000).The caris averaging mid 30's round town. I used to tow with a Discovery 3 and this is as good if not better!! as the gear ratios seem better for towing.

Hope this helps

Regards
