This is my setup. 33 ft Jayco trailer, between 7,000-7,500 lbs ready for camping. Airstream will tow better / easier due to lower center of gravity and aerodesign. I am using weight distribution...

Thecastle, your observations about handling of X5 vs. truck while towing are irrelevant. In reality, in the US only trucks can tow! Just kidding :)

Thanks for sharing your experience. I fully agree that the X5 tow rating in the US is restricted by the capacity of the hitch.

It's been 3 years towing for me. Some 16-17k towing miles. X5 tow...

Good data. All X5s have good payload capacity. 45e with the lowest payload has 1580 lbs, which is plenty. US versions are rated to 7,200 lbs = 3,265 kg.
