The hitch on the back will state it's max weight. That is not to say the motorhome can tow that much. Take the weight of a fully loaded motorhome and subtract that from the gross vehicle weight to see what you can tow. The owners manual should help also.

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.

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.
