Welcome.

One of the best places to get set up for towing is Demco: https://www.demco-products.com/rv-towing.

You can also look at Etrailer.com

Are you sure that your DCT transmission is 4 down towable. From some diagrams I have seen, it is a variation on a CVT with centrifugal clutch setup instead of a hydraulic torque converter. I think you need to check this out before making a very expensive mistake.

From page 6-24 of the Owner's Manual:

Do not tow the vehicle with four wheels in contact with the ground if it is the vehicle equipped with DCT or IVT. Otherwise, the transmission will be seriously damaged.
