I have a 2006 Sprinter Motorhome 316CDI (903663) 5cyl, with 5speed MB Auto/Transmission.
The question I have is:
Is towing a 1600Kg 4x4 the same as putting a load of 1600Kg in the van - in regards to the extra load on the 722.6 transmission ?

Thanks from downunder.

yes.... it's close enough that you might as well call it the same.... the load on the engine/transition/breaks will be the same....

but it will handle very differently depending on how you tow it... rope/trailer/dolly etc...
