Dodge Durango

We have a 1999 dodge Durango that I am thinking about setting up as a TOAD. I know that they are on the heavy side but it is paid for and it is a 4x4. Does anyone else have a Durango that they tow and how has it been? What are the pro/cons of this vehicle? We have a 2003 HR Endeavor 38' DP with the Cummin 8.3 diesel.
I would expect to see a decrease in fuel MPG, but that goes with any towing.

As long as it has a neutral position in the transfer case it is towable. I tow a Tahoe 4X4. Weighs about 5100 #. Did tow a Jeep Liberty at 4100 #. Couldn't see much difference in mileage between them. I don't know much about the Durango.

We have a 2000 Durango we have towed over 125k miles behind do different motorhomes. There a couple different 4X4 and it sounds like you have the correct trasfer case that has a neutral. Towed with 8.3 75K and then 70K with Ism 500 and what a great tow toad. The Durango weights about 5000 lbs. Again has been a great tow and sight seeing vehicle.

We have a Roadmaster set up with the Sterling Tow Bar, cover for windshield, Brake Pro for stopping and the large shield for the front end. All works well and like Roadmaster products.
