Two Small Class B RVs That Can Actually Tow:
In recent years, manufacturers of Class B motorhomes have been equipping them with trailer hitches that allow them to tow cars.
Yet, this doesn’t mean that every Class B RV can tow a vehicle, and it doesn’t mean that the ones that can pull a car can tow every type of vehicle.
To determine if a Class B RV can tow a car, you need to look at its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and compare it to how much the Class B total towing capacity is.
On average most Class B motorhomes can pull cars that weigh between 3,500 and 5,000 pounds.
If the vehicle exceeds the towing capacity limit, you can damage your motorhome and the car you’re towing.
Below we have found two of the best small Class B RVs capable of towing a vehicle.
To help you decide which might suit your needs best, we have included the amenities and features of the motorhomes and the estimated price:
