THOR #5533
Towing Weight Freedom Elite 28H

We bought a 2016 Freedom Elite 28H and need to have a car when we get to camping sites. Any information on how many pounds we can tow behind our class C and what kind of vehicles flat tow best would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

here are the specs on your coach
2017 Freedom Elite Class C Motorhomes by Thor Motor Coach - Freedom Elite Motorhomes by Thor Motor Coach

your rated for 8000 in tow. max tongue weight of 500 and a gross combined weight of 22000.

i have a 2016 22fe and it has same ratings. also call Thor customer service, they like the easy calls to verify..ford owners manual suggest not to tow anything for the first 1000 miles also. if it is brand new, do yourself a favor and get the front end aligned first thing. it will save on tire wear. that is from the freedom elite or owners manual that you were given.

Get yourself a Ford Fiesta. Only weighs 2600 lbs. We tow all four down.

We have 2017 26HE with Ford E450. Cannot tell the car is back there when towing.

We bought the 2017 Ford Fiesta Hatchback, auto trans, moon roof, for $14,500 out the door price last year.

Went to a Hitch specialist shop had it rigged for flat towing, base place, tow bars, permanent installed towing brake control, all hook ups. Had everything installed. Best decision ever.

no need for extra lights, setting up brakes on pedal. None of that.

With car engine running, put foot on brake, place trans in neutral, wait for indication that trans is ready, turn key off, leave key in column so colum will not lock when steering, turn off battery, hook up tow bar, safety chains, electric line, turn on system and go. We have it down to about five minutes hook up time.
(also bought battery turnoff switch at auto zone and installed it on battery post.)
Be sure to read owners manual under recreational towing.
