One of the greatest mysteries I have found is why so many owners like this 3litre Diesel cab chassis variant of a European Van as a tow vehicle for a 32-34ft 5th wheeler.Photos give you some idea why. Owners really love these 5th wheel tugs

Typical comments about them
Quote:

Mine is a 36 fter cross road cruiser and it is towed by a iveco 50 c 18. Its a great tug.

Quote:

Our 2014 Iveco 50C21 lwb, 6spd manual, diff locks, ECAS rear airbags. Excellent on fuel. Gr8 truck. Very happy with it.

Quote:

50C21 - 5 years 140k klm. Minor issues but great truck.

Quote:

I have a 2018 70C21 8 speed Auto 210 HP chipped after only 300k ( 300,000kilometres or 186411miles)with a DB chip, so not sure about the difference but happy with the performance. Returns about 16Lt per 100k at about 85-90 kph(14.7mpg US) pulling the van at 10.2 tonne(22487lb). Fly's along unhooked and so far hasn't missed a beat

Good looking setup - but how does the 3L diesel do and highway speeds?

Same as anything else. If it did not it would not be that good as a tow vehicle

A few more comments I found on another site.
Quote:

There's nothing wrong with the automatic! The iveco does a brilliant job of towing our fiver up hills and down dale. It's great that you can use it as a manual when you need to.

Quote:

My daughter advertised this for me as I am dumb with all this modern technology. the van is actually 33 ft long, it is the SUNDANCE model and is ideal if one wants to add bunks without any alteration. The IVECO is a dual cab tip truck six speed manual, making it a very useful piece of equipment apart from pulling the van. They are both licensed in WA

We got an 2021 dual cab brand new , got told to cut 400ml of Tray/chassis dammmmmmmmm but not for sale beautiful truck ????????

Frank yes but I was showing how capable the IVECO Daily is and it's various uses. Still amazed how popular it is as a tow vehicle.

Looks to fill the niche that the F450/550/650 and similar are used for in the US, not quite medium duty semi tractor but something much more stout than a normal pickup/ute.
