Thank you Bobojay - Yes, your response helps. . . . . but now I'm concerned.  We were told that the Sprinter could tow up to 5,000 lbs, so I'm not sure why you said that our Tucson was pushing the limit.  Anyway, I am thankful for all you insight.

Not many Sprinter PC owners on here, but I can tell you after owning 2 Sprinters, an '08 and a '13, not PC's, that you are pushing the limits there on the weight. Be sure you have supplemental braking not just because of some state laws, but because the Sprinter's brakes are just good enough as it is. Not much leeway there.
Plan on no longer than 40k miles transmission fluid/filter changes, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to investigate a supplemental transmission fluid cooler. Remember you've only got a 3yr/36k warranty on that transmission, and you're talking over $4k to repair/replace that unit. (unless you've bought an extended warranty)
The NAG-1 transmission you have is not known for being very "heavy duty" if you will. I would shift up & down manually if I towed something that heavy with my Sprinter.
If you tow a lot, expect frequent, 50k, maybe sooner, brake replacements, probably the rears believe it or not.

Expect about a 1-2 mpg reduction in fuel mileage towing on the flatlands.

Hope this helps....

I love my solar panel.  We just replaced our batteries with new maintain. free batteries and the solar panel was working so well. We ha a great time boondocking at Assateague Maryland.

Hey, I finally get to see your solar panel. I am so jealous.

Have the 2100.  One over-the-door towel rack.  Also a pressure curtain rod running the length of the bathroom (back wall to over medicine cabinet). Sits above the shower door frame and is used mainly for drying wet towels/laundry (but we are short so not a problem).  When driving, put a binder clip on all towels so they stay put.

Hello - We love our 2015 PC 2350 Sprinter, and we will eventually be towing our 3,197 pound, manual transmission 2011 Hyundai Tucson.  But so far we have never towed any vehicle behind our Sprinter. 

I would like to hear from other Sprinter 2350 owners about their experiences with towing.  How does the Sprinter handle towing?  Basically, anything you can tell us about how the Sprinter performs while towing would be helpful.

Thank you,

Cindy & Dale

Tom, yes the register swivels.  That doesn't help because of its location.  It just mostly swivels to heat one side or the other of the toilet base.   And, as I mentioned in my earlier post, obviously the answer would be to increase the hose size, re-position the register and direct its flow as best possible.  I am going to simply build a little diverter for this  trip in a few days and tear it down when we get back and rebuild the whole thing, which is not that great a project.  Hopefully, PC will take a look at this location and see if they can come up with a little modification for the production line.   It is tight in the bathroom and there ain't a whole lot of real estate to move that little fella.  I may discover relocation isn't practical, but a larger pipe should be practical.   

The math is simple:  the flow of a three inch duct is approximately 56% of a 4 inch duct.   That, and location of the register, are the two problems.  I didn't measure the ducts when I had the bed out and the support strand board removed but that is probably close to what they are (3&4). 

Thanks for all the input from everyone.

Interesting information Tom.  I had thought the furnace exhausted via 3 standard size ducts.  My rig is now 8 years old so maybe that was the case back then, different lately.  Then again, maybe I have 3 & 1 like you describe.
