Towing capacity Sun Voyager

My son is looking at a 1996 Gulfstream Sun Voyager with the Cummings 5.9 and Allison four speed. Wants to tow full size race car probably about 3600 pounds and along with an enclosed trailer. Can I get some information on towing capacities of the Sun Voyager? Thanks, Jim E. OKC

My '98 with the same engine and perhaps the same transmission, I believe, is limited to 4000 lbs. If like my set up, there is no exhaust brake and the trans doesn't have a lock-up converter, so little to no engine braking available. Most likely a '96 5.9L Cummins is only rated at 190 hp? Mine is rated at 210 and I wouldn't try to tow more than my Beetle.
