We have a 2010 Freedom Elite 21c RV and we want to low tow a 2014 mini-cooper countryman that has a 6 speed manual transmission. We just purchased the RV in May of 2017 so this is all a new adventure for us. We have made several trips already but have never towed a vehicle.
According to the manual, the RV has a GVWR of 12,500 lbs with a combined GVWR of 18,500 lbs. The mini-cooper manual says that it can be low towed and according to the silver tag on the door has a GVWR of 3858 lbs. This tells me that we should be good-to-go but want to verify this with all the experts on this forum.
If we are good-to-go I want to purchase a BlueOx low tow system with a lighting package and will also install a supplemental braking system.
Any suggestions, comments, tips would certainly be appreciated.
