All,<p> I know this has been discussed before but I wasn't seeing what I wanted in the archives. Our family is looking to take a vacation at the end of the summer and tow a trailer with the XC90 ('04 2.5T AWD/7 pass). I am fully aware of Volvo's posted towing limits.<p>Has anyone towed greater than the 500lb max?<p>The tongue weight bothers me since most RV places are stating tongue weight should be 10% of the trailer's weight. If so, we are tongue weight restricted to a 2000lb trailer. Doesn't seem right does it?<p>This is a one time (for now) deal, so I don't want to buy a load leveler/weight distributor and run up the expenses. Thoughts?<p>Also planning on switching to synthetic engine oil and getting the transmission oil changed also as precautions.<p><br>Thanks,<br>Steve<br>The XC90 is now 56kmi and counting without a problem!
