Flat towing a Sprinter

I'm looking for people with Real-world experience with flat towing a Sprinter. I have a 2500 extended that I'm thinking of flat towing behind a 40' DP motor home. Looking for details.

Owners manual does not address recreational towing.
Pg 279 Sprinter Operators manual. Towing vehicle with front or rear axle off the ground - ignition must be off or ESP may damage brake system. With Front axle raised towing distance limited to 30 miles or propeller shafts must be removed. Towing speed may not exceed 30mph. Both axles on the ground do not tow at speeds over 31mph or you may damage transmission. Always use new bolts when reconnecting the driveshaft....

This may help you decide - look under the "towing" section of your respective year:
