210, 210 Tow Performance, or even the 250 tune......if you keep a close eye on your gauges.

The 210 TP has firmer shifts to keep the clutches alive for a heavy load, and early lock-up for stronger pulling and better fuel mileage.

We always recommend using the tow/haul button while towing

I pulled a 10K pound trailer with the 275 tune twice going about 60 miles each time without any issues. Is this not recommended?

You can tow with what ever tune you would like, but I don't recommend towing with a tune that big. A lot of guys do it though....with no issues.
