Customer Question
Can I tow an...

Can I tow an automobile in a trailer with a 2005 Alegro 77db with the vortech 8.1? Let's say the car is a 2001 CRV Honda

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet, I'm getting ready to buy this alegro used 2005 that looks to be in great shape 33000 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it.

Usually, depending on the weight of your trailer. Or perhaps you can do a tow dolly instead if that other weighs too much.

how much wight on that model would be too much?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 10 months ago

Most of those coaches are rated at 5,000 lbs for towing. How much does your car weigh?

Around 3300 lbs

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We were in an area where I didn't get reception for my tablet. Then unless you have a very heavy trailer you should be fine. Hope that proves helpful here.
