Any Land Rover towers out there?

I got the 2016 F-250 Powerstroke but that pulls our travel trailer. Our two favorite lakes the wife will have to pull the X30 with her v8 Land Rover LR3. It has seemed to do good on somewhat flat land for CO. Not sure about how it will do in the hills. Just checking to see if anyone on here has had any experience...?

I tow my prostar with an LR3 and it does great with that. The heaviest boat I've towed is a 26 Yellowfin and it did fine with it but it was right at the weight limit and the trick was definitely no speed demon with that amount of weight behind it.

When towing I always use sport mode as a kind of tow haul mode since the truck doesn't have a dedicated one.

Dont have a LR3, but the LR4 was one of the best trucks we have used for towing... the Range Rover Sport Supercharged was also great, and even my new discovery sport is decent at towing.

The lr3 have working air suspension? If so it will be nice and leveled....

Have you towed your 205 with the disco sport? Girlfriend has been looking at one and I'm curious how it will do with the Prostar.
