Hi: tracyschle... Sorry I can't help with info. Most of us here are towing light weight fiberglass TT's 3000 lb. or less, so a tow cap. of 5000 lbs or less, and a V6 will do!!! Alf

6800 lbs... woo. I bet you can research tow capacities of SUVs online. Keep in mind you'll want a fat safety margin (say, 1500 lbs. minimum?). I bet you'll need something like a Suburban or an Excursion, maybe a Tahoe or Expedition will do.
I just purchased my first TT weighing in at 6800 lbs. (2011 Fourwinds 311 BHDS).
I don't believe my Ford Expedition can safely pull it. Looking for suggestions on an SUV type that would do the job.
Tracy, you may find the answers you seek at the Open Road forums at RV.net. Click here: http://www.rv.net/forum/. I see there's a Tow Vehicles forum about 3/4 down the page under Technical Resources. You'll need to register to post, but it's free and easy.
Best of luck.
