After wading through a bunch of stuff in the 2017 Envision Owners Manual, I find a max trailer weight of 1500 lbs, but this only includes a driver.  Weight of all other passengers, cargo and options must be deducted from this weight.  Page 234, 235.

In other words, nothing past a SMALL utility trailer.  VERY FEW small campers will be under 1500 lb GVWR.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

The title looks like he wants to know about the Envision as a toad.
The line in the post looks more like using the Envision as a vehicle to tow something.

My first reply was for a toad, which should work fine.  Then I reread and rewrote my response.

His RV is a Dutch Star 4369. That is a big motor home. I would guess he's looking at towing the Buick behind the motorhome. The term "tow  vehicle " is confusing.   I wish people would say towed vehicle or towing vehicle.
