I think a better place for you to get an answer is on the Thor forum.

I did check on the Thor forum, with some folks saying they towed and had no problems, others recommend a diesel pusher. I am just searching for more experiences, thanks.

OK. I didn't know if you had been to the Thor forum, or were aware of it.

I'm not familiar with the V 10 triton gas Miramar 34.2, so I have no idea the size.
I towed a Jeep wrangler with a small class c that had the V 10. I couldn't really tell it was back there.
My suggestion would be if you already own both rigs--try it. Then you will know from your own first hand experience. The V10 is quite a work horse.

Before we switched to our Redwood our previous MH had the Triton 10 and I have to say that was one of the best engines I had ever had. Owned it for 8 years and it was flawless. We mainly towed a jeep wrangler and it had no idea it was even there. I also towed a full size GMC van and it was fine. It was working on the hills but had no problem at all. I think you will be fine but even though they have large brakes on the MH's you would want to install the breaking system.

The engine MAY struggle on some big hills, but it's doable.

the thing you need to consider is the weight of the 1500 and the GVWR of the coach...
Some coaches have a very low capacity for 'extras' ...

good luck.
