For that matter lots of people pull living quarter multi horse gooseneck trailers with 6 cylinders. All the Heavy dodge cummings turbo diesels are 6 cylinders. Allways read between the lines, look at the tow rating of your exact vehicle and the loaded weight of the trailer. Marketing hype and incomplete open ended statements are meaningless.
Thanks for the explaination joe, so do you believe that the brenderup trailer is able to be towed by what they display as a volvo station wagon because its light weight or because of the tounge of the rig?
