Motorhome towing Xtrail

I am considering buying a motorhome and am curious as to whether or not my 2005 Xtrail can be safely towed behind or not. Just getting into RVing and have never towed a vehicle behind another before. I see lots of posts about how the Xtrail can tow just about anything but I can't find anything where the Xtrail is the vehicle being towed.

Does anyone tow their Xtrail?

All comments welcomed.

Thank you.

It's a sweet idea. But I read somewhere the x-trail has to be either placed on a flat-bed or trolleys anytime it's towed beyond a certain distance - due to its drivetrain design.

The hand book recommends dollies and says it should never be towed with wheels raised (except 2x4).
