With a diesel pusher just about any vehicle that is towable either 4 down or dolly.

I took a quick look at the specs for the 28' Tiffin Breeze and noticed the hitch capacity is listed at 4000lbs.

Get your owners manual, or download one online. It will tell you the GVWR of your rig and that includes the tow vehicle.

Remember the engine is important in pulling but the transmission is just as important in going uphill and down hill.

Close, but not quite accurate. GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is the max weight allowed for the motorhome without the towed vehicle. This includes the MH, fuel, water, propane, personal items/equipment stored in the motorhome, driver and passengers. GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating) is the above weights plus the weight of the car being towed including the tow bar or dolly used to tow the car and everything that is stored in the car.

You must meet ALL THE LIMITS --The hitch rating AND the GVWR AND the GCWR.
