Getting ready to take the family of 7 out this summer! Now towing a 32’ cougar! Tow mode works great on this 2017SL 3500!

Pics coming, can’t figure out how to upload from my phone ....

That is about the size travel trailer I'm looking at getting. Please let us know how it tows. I'm a little nervous about trying to maneuver a trailer so long.

NV tows great.  I have thousands of miles towing the camper in my signature line all including multiple trips through the Appalachian and Blue Ridge mountains.  


Make sure you are not over the weight limits.  Make sure you have a good WD hitch and brake controller.  Make sure they are both setup properly.  Make sure you are very OCD about your tires on both camper and the NV and you will be fine.

Just bought a 2019 NV 3500 SL P for this very reason: camping.  We had a suburban and considered the new Ford Expedition but with a payload of only 1550 or so lbs, it wouldn't fit the bill.


I researched towing extensively and am confident the NV is going to do a great job.  We're traveling from socal to Montana so with us luck.  TT will be a 33' 7000 lb GVWR Keystone Passport.

Here is the van with trailer! Towes great so far, considering airbags for a little extra stability though....
