I do not want to be a meany here---but, after RVing for over 35 years in one form or another, I have never seen a BMW in front of a trailer. Not saying it can't be done.
Chose wisely and think safety.


They're quite good, especially the diesels.

Compared to the F-150 from 2010 they're similar, but Ford rated theirs higher than BMW did in North America. In Europe the same engine and chassis in the BMW had a higher rating, up to 7700 lbs (IIRC).
The Ford V-8 of the time was 248 HP. The BMW inline 6 3L (gas) was/is 264 hp and 230 torques and is underrated. It develops good torque down low (between 2 and 3k) and has a very linear delivery. It will tow up to and over its rating all day and in fact I argue with one of the guys on the BMW forum who regularly tows a 32' TT with an 800 lb tongue weight which I think is WAY too far. He's been doing it for years and thinks I'm a moron.

I am currently shopping for another tow vehicle but our X5 ("The Bus") has been great and we both want to keep it. I do the majority of the work on her keep her in good nick.

I've been into sports cars and racing for years. If you go to the track on a regular basis you'll see a number of German SUVs towing all manner of things.
