Can you elaborate how the Urban Styling Kit changes things? Mine has it with the hitch, but i was thinking the hitch implementation will be even worse because of the skid plates?I reluctantly cancelled my NA tow hitch today. Buying the Urban Styling kit as an alternative is not feasible for me. Hopefully, a better design is coming. Nonetheless, I will be interested in the towing experiences, too.
That 50 mph recommendation is very concerning. I would not have been surprised if it said "55" since that is the law on U.S. highways, afaik. If this 50 mph recommendation is real, then that takes the T8 off my list. If all Volvo intends is for you to tow your boat from your home along low-speed roads to a boat ramp, then no American who uses a camper will buy the T8.Have you checked out the NA/US owners manuals? I read a couple of things that caught my eye in the US T8 owners manual under "Driving with a trailer":
- Maximum speed when towing a trailer: 50 mph (80 km/h) - This seems too low.
This speed is too low and a bit concerning, particularly for US Interstate travel. What does your owner's manual say for your model? I would not have been too surprised with a maximum 60 mph (90 km/h). Might this be only a T8 limitation?
