    Towing a pop up camper

    Anyone tow a pop up camper with your Soul? I know they are pretty light and should be within the ability of a Soul to tow, but just want to know if anyone has done this and their views of how well the Soul handles it.

    I wouldn't think it would be a problem. How much does the camper weigh. I think that's the deciding factor.

    If the 1.6 diesel can pull this, the 2.0 petrol wont be far behind it on towing ability.

    How can you tow without a hitch? My dealer says there is no hitch made for the kia soul.The owners manual says you can't tow with the soul. I hope this is wrong, i would like to tow my bike.

    Where are you located? In the U.S. it is not recommended to tow anything. BUT, we all do it anyway. They are rated to tow 300 lbs. tongue weight, 2000 lbs. gross weight.
    You can find trailer hitches in a myriad of places. I bought mine on eBay for $75.
