I would think you'd be fine. I have an EL which is pretty low and i tow my boat with that. Its an 18ft glass, so would have a fair bit of weight behind it.

Only prob i have though, is it feels a little bit swayee(new word!) over 100kmh. But legally you can't tow over 100 anyway so its all sweet for me.

should also add, i will only tow in 3rd, as it stops the gearbox from changing from 4th to 3rd all the time - thus preventing excess heat build up.

Also, heavily recommend the trans cooler if not already fitted. Even getting an aftermarket bigger cooler would be better....

Again im assuming you have an auto...
