  1. S60 (2001-2010)
    Hi guys, I am planning to do mountainous driving with my 2007 2.5T S60, with a decent load - 1300 lb trailer. In the summer months, the transmission runs risk of overheating, and we all know that's game over. I am unaware of any auxiliary transmission cooler for the S60. Has anyone installed...
  2. S60, S60CC & V60, V60CC (2011-2018)
    So, I am towing a trailer with my S60 2.5T. And in the manual it says something along the lines: Max hitch weight 165 lbs. With the max towing weight being 3300 lbs. How is this possible (safe)? The tongue weight is supposed to be 10-15% of total weight. So if you did max out the towing, your...
  3. V70 & XC70 (2008 - 2016)
    Hi - I have a 2012 XC70 that I'd like to use for towing a 2500 pound RV. My XC70 Owner's Manual says the maximum speed when towing a trailer is 50 mph (80 km/h) - manual page 278. Also, the manual says that the maximum trailer weight, with brakes and 2" ball, is 3300 pounds, which is...
  4. S90 & V90, V90CC (SPA: 2017 - )
    I was wondering about the feasibility of having a hitch installed on my yet to be delivered V90. I have a 2000lb 16' Fish / Ski boat that I use a few times a year. I was wondering if this is a good idea and what options there are. What may be the pitfalls? Engine / transmission strain...
  5. XC90 (SPA: 2016 - )
    New poster, but a longtime Volvo owner. We moved out west a couple of years ago and are thinking about a smaller travel trailer that we'd tow with our XC90. We also have an older XC60, but wouldn't even try. We're looking at this guy, which Camping World will move up to Oregon for us...
  6. XC90 (SPA: 2016 - )
    Hi, I recently got the new retractable OEM towing package installed on my XC90 (2"x2" towbar receiver with 2in ball mount). The standard hitch is about 2in too low for my camper. Has anyone here used the OEM retractable receiver with a 3rd party ball mount? Preferably an adjustable height one...
  7. General Volvo Discussions
    Hi all. Just to say i'm new to Volvo and new to towing. I've just bought a late 2019 V60 T5 R Design. We have a lightweigh Caravan and use it for weekend away with kids here in the UK. So normally around 100 miles from London area about 4 or 5 times a year. I use my car for 25miles round trip...
  8. XC40 (CMA 2019- )
    Hi there, I'm looking to avoid spending $1400 on the dealer installed tow hitch by installing a third party hitch myself given there are plenty of options for around the $200-$600 mark. However I'd like to use the OEM control unit to ensure maximum compatibility with Volvo's electrics. I...
