Hi Joe and Joan, and welcome to IRV2!
We have a 2010 Acadia SLT2, and it flat tows with ease behind out 2012 Discovery 36J. I'm not aware of any restrictions on the Acadia, other than a 65 mph limit, idle the engine 5 minutes before departure to lubricate the transmission, and again every fuel stop on the coach.
To make life easier, I installed a switch to disconnect the fuse otherwise recommended to be pulled so the battery isn't drained while driving. We use the SMI Air Force One braking system, which has proved to be excellent. No driver's floor box to install/remove when you head out on the road. Our tow bar is be Blue Ox.
Check out this link for the Motorhome Magazine annual review of towable vehicles:

You'll see there's no limit on the 2012 Acadia. Hope that helps!
See you down the road...
