    @Mare Hi Mare! We need to know which T@B model you're interested in. There are many and they vary quite a lot in size and weight.

    @Mare, Lots of posts here about that very subject. Personally though... a vehicle that exceeds the towing capacity required for the model you're interested in, AND a hitch that exceeds the capacity for the tongue weight with a seven pin port for both brakes & charging. A vehicle with a minimum of a V6 motor with a transmission cooler, especially if you're headed to mountainous areas. Just a personal opinion from someone that does a lot of boondock campin'. :)

    Generally speaking, most vehicles that are offered from the dealer with a tow package (not just an aftermarket installed trailer hitch), can often tow a T@b.  A tow package often includes a larger engine, a suitable transmission that has sufficient cooling, in addition to the trailer hitch and wiring.  There are many exceptions to any general statement on the subject though.

    No:
    Most sedans and hatchbacks
    Sports cars

    Sometimes:
    Midsize crossovers and SUVs, if properly equipped

    Yes:
    Most Minivans and large crossovers 
    Body on frame SUVs, vans, and pickup trucks
