we have a 15 grand caravan. we towed the small pop up with it, and didn't feel it. now we have bought a trailer. it is small, just about 14' and we weighed it yesterday and it weighed 2100, with 1/3 tank water (the most we would travel with) full propane and battery. our van and trailer together weighed in at 7040# and the GCWR for the van is 8750#. the front area of the trailer is a little over, but the trailer has a very sloped front end and supposedly falls with in the frontal area rating of the van. I called dodge and got info on our van. it has a heavy duty engine cooler & transmission oil cooler Over and over I read on the different forums that a grand caravan isn't a good tow vehicle. Yet several people who's opinion I value have assured me it can easily handle this trailer. I realize there are so many scenarios that could happen in towing a trailer, it is impossible to consider them all, but simply to be as informed and prepared as you can. So without brakes, or a weight distribution hitch, we took it on a short highway test drive yesterday. It handled a pretty steep and long grade with ease, not frequently shifting, rpms and speed showing no real problem for the van. It was not stressful when trucks passes, and I was comfortable driving at highway speeds. (not 75) I've read a lot about weigh equalizer hitches, and can see how that would be a good addition, although they look like a pain to use, but I think we should use one. I guess I'm really wondering why many on line advise against the GC as a tow vehicle?
