    Has anyone towed, or know somebody that has, with a Chrysler Pacifica? My wife and I want a vehicle with a third row seat. We found a great deal on a 2007 Pacifica. With the current gas prices and the cost of new SUVs, this one might fit our needs perfectly. We want it to tow our 94 Chalet Alpine with ease. Thanks for any input.

    The research that i found gave the max trailer weight at 3500 lbs so depending on the weight of your trailer, people, and luggage you need to be at or below that weight. Good luck

    We have a 2005 Pacifica and a 2000 Coleman Cheyenne that weighs around 2000 lbs dry weight. We've only taken it out once, but it did fine going up into the north Georgia mountains. Our Pacific owners manual recommends a GVWR of 3000 lbs if you have 3-4 people in the vehicle and 3500 lbs if you only have 1-2 people. I think they are estimating adults and luggage.

    I was recently in the same boat. I wound up with an '07 V6 Explorer. It has plenty of torque, and can tow 5000lb. I have been getting around 18 mpg (roughly the same as my '05 Freesyle was getting). There are great incentives on them now, too. The only place I'll suffer is highway mpg. The Freestyle got 27, the Explorer about 21.

    Thanks for the info. I think we are leaning toward a Durango. A bit more expensive, but I think a better tow vehicle, Hey rictone, glad to see you enjoy your Chalet. We love ours. It is 13 years old and still in great shape. Those Chalet XLs are HUGE. My wife and I saw an older Toyota 4Runner pulling one this weekend. I don't know how he saw around that thing behind him.

    Happy Camping.
