Default Trailer Towing?

Has anybody tried towing a trailer with the L? If so, what are your experiences?

I am going to have to retire the '91 Buick Century Wagon in a year or so. It only has about 320,000 km on it, and everything works great. But the body is starting to go. We use it to tow a very large tent trailer. It weighs about 1500 lb. with some stuff in it and has about 250 lbs of tongue weight. I have looked at the hitches for the L and LW and can only find a Class I good for up to 200 lbs tongue wt. Saturn only rates the L/LW for 1000 lb.

We use Air Lift spring helpers on the Century and these work great at keeping the suspension level. Also have an ATX cooler.

If the LW won't do the job, I am considering a Saab 9-5 wagon, as it has a much higher trailer towing rating. Note - the wife doesn't want a minivan.

I have an LS1 and was told by the dealer that if I installed a hitch, my powertrain warranty would be void.
Basically they don't want you towing anything with the LS series.
On the side the tech told me that it can tow, but that they don't recomend anything over 1000 pounds.
