I have heard of one person that tows an Outlook behind an RDP. I know it's possible, otherwise I regret that I do not have additional insight.

I tow a 2008 Vue XE. It's an awesome toad. Using Blue Ox baseplate, towbar, bulb kit, cables and covers. All my towing stuff fits in a bag about the size of one of my wife's small pocketbooks.

SMI auxiliary brake. In an air equipped RDP, the SMI- Air-Force-One is the best brake.

We are towing a 2010 Outlook, love it. I just installed a switch to cut off battery while towing, installed base plates ( a bit of trouble, but do able) and we were off! We pulled a Vue before that with same coach, Winnebago Journey (diesel), can't tell the difference between pulling them. Go for it, the Outlook is a great car as well.

Is it as significant as the manufacturer states to not exceed 65 miles per hour while towing

I've towed its sister, a 2007 GMC Acadia, for 50k miles. Works fine. I used to exceed 65 some of the time, but since fuel prices went up I've slowed down. My best fuel economy is at about 63 mph.
