Remco has told me that you can tow the chrysler T/C with their lube pump installed,but dealer I use said something about engine size and the 6 speed tranny might be a issue. waiting on more info from him.
weight could be a issue as the 2008 T/C has a plate on the door that reads GVWR of 6050 lbs. Curb weight or actual scale weight has to less than this. Dealer said he would take it to the local truck scales to get a true weight. I will post that weight when I get it.
we have a 5000 lb hitch on the motor home and have had problems towing a Jeep cherokee in the past with trailer frame cracking and the hitch materials on hitch coming apart to the point the tow bars were draging on the groung
The mini seems like a more flexible toad for everyday use .
My neighbor pulls a 05 Honda CV-R,says thats a good way to go, no lube pump needed.

I had a T&C that I sold because it was over the 5000# empty. I ended up with the Vue in my signature and am happy with it. I do miss my T&C with all the toys and room though. My Vue is only around 3500# and a CRV is a couple less than that.
