Can I tow with a 1985 Georgie Boy?

I’m looking to purchase a 1985 Georgie Boy and need to tow my car with it (Nissan XTerra). I can’t find any information online about towing capacity and if it’s ok to tow a car from a Georgie Boy. I want to make sure that’s possible before making the purchase, any information or guidance will help!! Thank you!!!

Welcome to iRV2,

What chassis is your coach on and do you have any GVWR or GCWR Info on the chassis , or your XTerra’s weight ?

Hi!!! I don’t have the chassis information, I’m looking to buy it but I will need to pull my car with it which is 4400 pounds, which is an SUV. The model of the RV is Cruise Air II.

Do I need to put a receiver tow or do I have to actually have it on the trailer?

Could it pull that much weight and is it safe?

Thank you

The info on towing your XTerra , should be in the owners manual . If not check the link below .

Many older RV's had tow limits , under 4,000 Lbs. So you have to have all the info from the RV . There should be a sticker like the picture below , no set place you'll have to search for it , with all the weight info.

I would also be surprised if the towing capacity was over 3500# on a gas coach of that era.
