Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

I'm looking to replace my 04 Caddy Deville and dolly with a vehicle more suited to our needs.

One that interests me is the Cadillac Escalade 4X4 Hybrid;
1- It's factory towable
2- It will hold my Eide Boat Loader and fishing boat on it's roof rack.
3- It will hold my R/C model airplanes in it's spacious rear compartment
4- It gets reasonable mileage, for a big vehicle.
5- It's a domestic vehicle, important to me.
6- It has a very well appointed interior with all the features I'm used to (spoiled) and more.

I think it might be slightly heavier than my motor home is rated to tow? Is that a deal breaker?

Has anyone got one, or know how they tow?
