Hi all, I am considering traveling around the U.S. for a year and am thinking about towing a small tear-drop trailer behind my GLA 250. Has anyone here ever done that? Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated!
While the English (and others?) use the GLA 250 to haul caravans, indicating towing is safe, USA DOT does not list the GLA with a towing capacity indicating that you might have some insurance problems in the event of an accident.
That is ... The UK DOG lists a towing package but the USA DOG does not.
I've recently heard that the 45 is different and it does not allow for towing in any country. I assume this is true but I am not positive.
Wow...I thought if the manual has towing capacity listed that it would be safe to tow. I am looking at small tear-drop trailers under 2k lbs. I will research what you mentioned about the DOT and my insurance. Thank you.
