Best Vehicles for Road Trips with a Camper
When you want to get out of the sprawl of Los Angeles, CA, one of the best ways to do so is to take your camper to one of our beautiful national parks and spend time there, enjoying nature. However, one of the most difficult aspects of owning a camper is also owning a vehicle that’s capable of towing something so heavy. Luckily, here at Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM and FIAT, we carry a few heavy-duty trucks and SUVs that are ready to tow the heaviest of campers.
2019 RAM 1500
The most obvious choice when it comes to towing a camper is a heavy-duty pickup truck. As one of the newest vehicles on our lot, the 2019 RAM 1500 is up to the task. This new version of the classic pickup truck is the most capable one yet, and it delivers best-in-class towing of up to 12,750 pounds, while the max payload is 2,300 pounds. These figures are delivered thanks to the monstrous 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque, which delivers 410 lb-ft of torque and 395 horsepower. Even better, the revolutionary technology at the heart of this engine allows you to save fuel, thanks to its variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation.
2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Another option for towing a camper is the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This trail-rated SUV does a lot more than just traversing the toughest terrain and taking you around town in luxury. If you choose the massive 6.4-liter HEMI® SRT® V8 engine–good for 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque–the SUV can tow up to 7,200 pounds. Meanwhile, the standard tow hooks make it easy to attach your camper.
