Can the Enclave tow a pontoon boat?

I'm just wondering if the Enclave can tow a pontoon boat. I have the tow package, but how much do one of those types of boats and trailers weigh? A friend of mine was wondering if we could tow his father-in-law's boat, and I'm kind of worried the tow ratings are too low for that kind of boat.

It would have to be a real "party barge" to be too heavy for the Enclave. Check the ID plate on the tongue of the trailer-that will give you the max weight the trailer can haul; as long as it's under 4500#, you're okay.

BTW-what time should we be at the dock........

I am looking at a Bennington booklet right now and the largest pontoon they offer is 28.6 feet with a hull weight of 4262 so you should be fine.
