Default Towing with an XR

Just wondering if anybody does or has, pulled a 7x14 enclosed trailer with their Vue? Trailer empty weight is about 2500lbs plus a Harley, it would probably be close to the 3500 towing capacity.
I'm guessing you'd also need some sort of mirror extensions too?
Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2008 VUE 3.6L
Default Re: Towing with an XR

eist,
What year XR? And my concerns with towing are, what sorta roads, how far and how long. If you are looking at a lot of hills I see two issues, braking, as the pre -08s don't have rear disc, and cooking the trans when going up or using it to brake when going down. Other than that, yeah, the extender mirrors come in pretty handy, but not a necessity as you aren't TOO wide... but certainly not a bad idea.

07 Vue V6 AWD LOADED!!! aka SUPER CRITTER!!! Sadly gone, and definitely missed.
08 Equinox Sport 3.6 6 spd auto, AWD, even more loaded. And the jury is still out on it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
