Thinking of downsizing but I have questions about towing with a Winnebago View and Navion. With the diesels that these units have, what can they tow, especially in the mountains out west? I have an HHR, WEIGHT 3200 lbs. can that View or Navion make it up the mountains in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Washington?

On the Winnebago website, they list the GCWR and GVWR, the GAWR (front) and GAWR (rear). The Sprinter chassis has a "5,000-lb. drawbar/500-lb. maximum vertical tongue weight w/7-pin connector" installed. (Navion)
Towing a 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid with our 13 Navion 24G. Weighs 3,600#. Using Roadmaster Falcon 2 and Invisibrake. Can easily hook and unhook in under 5 minutes by myself. Have towed over 4 Washington State mountain passes this year with no issues except mileage drops from 16 to 14 mpg. Also tow a Ford Ranger with the Itasca. 10,000 miles on the Navion and not a single warranty issue so far. Leaving for Carrabelle Florida in February with car in tow. Back to Seattle in May for a month then off to Alaska with the same rig. Looking forward to retirement.
