  3. Towing capacity

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi I have a 2016 RRS HSE (without the factory tow package) I'm considering purchasing the Atlantic British trailer hitch kit but I'm hesitant as I'm worried I'll go over the tow capacity has anyone towed a enclosed car trailer ( with a 3800lb or heavier car inside)? I would appreciate any...
  4. Towing Camera Views

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    The dealer had added the tow package to my RRS when I bought it new in 2016 but I just got the software updated so the truck knows the tow package is there (dealer originally didn't enable this). Good news is that I now have the towing camera view with the line for backing up to attach the...
  5. Towing just above 7700lbs with a 2016 RRS Td6

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi Folks, I'm looking to buy a new boat and the weight of the boat with fuel and trailer will probably be 8000lbs. I know the official number for Range Rover is 7716lbs. Does exceeding this limit by any amount pose a problem? What about going over 300lbs? The trailer does have it's own disc...
  6. Accessory to attach bike rack to towing eye?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    My MY16 RR (L405) doesn't have the towing package, just the standard towing eye. Which the owner's manual emphasizes "is designed for on-road recovery only. If the towing eye is used for any other purpose, it may result in vehicle damage and can cause serious injury or death." Undaunted by...

  8. Trailer towing gas mileage

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I recently used uhaul 5'x9' open trailers, 2 separate times 2 trailers, cold winter subzero temps, travelling 300km each way, all highway driving at 100-120 km/hr.

  9. towing with supercharged

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My boat is 3300lbs, I'm assuming the trailer is another 1500, with fuel and crap on the boat lets call it a max of 6000 pounds just to be safe... How well do you think the rover would tow that? Trans up to the challenge generally? 07 supercharged full size. I'd only be towing it occasionally...
  10. Parking sensors don’t deactivate when towing.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My 2011 RR has a dealer installed trailer hitch and factory harness with both the 4-pin and 7-pin connectors. I towed for the first time with the Rover over the holidays and much to my dismay the parking sensors didn’t deactivate automatically when the trailer connection was detected. (in this...

  14. Towing with the RR

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I bought 2 boats last month and I must say, the towing is great. You don't even know it's back there with the smoothness. I towed in my 06 years ago too but I don't remember it being this smooth like the 10...maybe it was or maybe its the dual axle trailer providing more smoothness. I went...
  15. Towing with LED Trailer Lights

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I’ve towed extensively with my 2014 RRS and Full Size. In order for trailer assist to work (showing trailer icon on dash, backup assist, etc) I had to buy a $300 device from Australia and solder and modify it. My question is, has anyone towed with an 18 on a modern trailer with LED lights, and...
  16. Towing with 2008 Range Rover Sport HSE

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I was hoping someone who has actually towed with their RRS can help me out. I have read all the threads and the manual but get conflicting information. Should I use a weight distribution hitch when towing or not? My 2008 RRS HSE will be towing a 23 foot travel trailer which weighs about 5,500...

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I am using my RRSC to tow my toy hauler and have read the manual about tow mode with sway control. Is there suppose to be an illumination on the dash when the vehicle is in tow mode? I can't seem to find that. When I had my 2006 RR, it would light up on the control panel a small picture of a...

    Hi all, I have my 2017 until june 2019 (lease) and I want to install a towing hitch but I need infos about the harness. I'm aware that LR harness is recommended because of the risks of electrical problems caused by wrong installations vs warranty and what it will cost if there are issues...
