Had anyone attempted to tow a trailer (CLASS 3 tow option). The Hyundai dealership recommended the UHAUL dealer as the place to install the after market tow hitch. However the UHAUL dealer said that my 2013 Santa Fe really can't tow. I was under the impression my SF could haul up to 5000 pounds. I need to haul 4200 pounds short distances (two ponies and the small trailer).
When buying this crossover SUV I was assured by the dealership I can do this. In the specs it says my Hyundai (6 cylinder GLS) is rated to 5000 pounds and includes the tow package (is that just the wires and break actuator?).

Has anyone any advice on installing the class 3 hitch or hauling a trailor?

Thanks

Rod

Hey Rod,

Not much action on this site. Lots of good towing info on the above site.

PS. If you have the V6 you'll be ok. I installed a Curt CLASS 3 hitch on my 2.4. It a DIY if your handy a have a few tools ;)

Cheers and good luck
Steve
