In order to demonstrate the towing ability of the all-new Range Rover, Land Rover teamed up with an American icon travel trailer to take part in the ultimate road-trip to one of the highest points in Africa.
 
With a newly-launched Airstream 684 Series 2 aluminium travel trailer hitched to its electrically-deployable tow bar, a Range Rover Autobiographywas choosen to drive from Airstream’s European home in the English Lake District, to the top of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and back.
 
The journey started at the factory where Airstream finishes its European specification trailers in Tebay, just a few miles from the Scottish border, to Oukaïmeden, which is the highest ski resort in Africa.
 
Often on the move for more than 12 hours a day on every type of road imaginable. From the empty motorways of Spain to the precipitous hairpins of the High Atlas, the all-new Range Rover coped imperiously with the challenge of towing a 2,399 kg Airstream 3,676 miles in just 11 days.
 
For this challenge, Land Rover decided to use the most popular version of its newest Range Rover Autobiography, the SDV8 engine ith 340 hp.
