  1. Travel trailer towing capacity?

    I need to weigh it. The murphy bed fold right up with sheets and pillows on it and folds back down exactly how it was. No idea how but it does. We went with the murphy bed for the exact same reason you said. Couch during the day, bed at night. Storage underneath. Search youtube for the 201bhxl One size bigger would be great but this one doesnt have a slide so less upkeep on that. We were looking at a forest river one size smaller but found this one on the lot discounted. We looked at jayco and keystone. Liked them alot but the dealer wouldnt budge on the extreme prices. We got this one for 16k. I’m sure there are better deals out there but we are very happy and my truck pulls it great. Towing mirrors and a 6.2 is all I wish I had different.
  2. Yeah well mine goes 120 here at 7500 foot elevation.
  3. Police package tahoe has a limiter at 120. I wonder if their driveshaft is police specific vs the standard one.
  4. Interesting, police package tahoe is limited at 120 mph. I’ve ran it 120 for a few miles without a problem. I wonder what the difference is.
  5. Something may be bent. Here is a whole seat on ebay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264096886298
  6. That looks like a great truck for the price. Maybe 32k to get a great vs good deal. I love my 2017 SLT premium plus. The only thing i wish mine had was a sunroof. I could give up the cooled seats. I like those snowflake wheels better than the plus wheels.
  7. Those tires are ugly.. but look promising.
  8. Topper Questions

    I ordered a new Leer 100xl right after I bought my 2017. The color is somewhat unique and I figured my chance of finding a used one was slim to zero. Mine was $2000 installed with roof carpet and led interior light.
  9. Travel trailer towing capacity?

    I tow a Forest River 201bhxl with my 17 crewcab 5.3 8 speed 4x4. Dry weight is 4233 pounds and loaded is around 5k. It tows great but you can definitely feel it behind the truck. I use a WD hitch and no sway control. I get 10-12 mpg towing. If i ever upgraded campers I would definitely want to upgrade the rear suspension or get a 6.2. We have a blast with the kids in this camper. Here we are setup at the Seven Peaks Festival last year.
  10. Falken Wildpeak AT3

    I currently have Duratracs in stock size. 275/55-20. I’m looking at the wildpeak at3w in 275/60-20. Are there any recent reviews on the deep snow and ice traction of these tires. The duratracs are excellent in all conditions, a true “all terrain” tire. My duratracs are just about 60% worn at 23k miles. A little noisy with age but still great in the snow. My plan is to replace the DT’s before next winter. I’m trying to decide what to get.

    Based on what?
  12. What tires to buy?

    Your mpg drop is due to 3 factors. Slightly larger diameter tires fooling your odometer with fewer miles driven. (Fewer revolutions per mile.) Heavier tires, (I cant find a weight spec on those 295’s), and more agressive tread pattern. Although you’d think the duramax would be less affected by the increase in rolling resistance. That is physics, the diameter change is pure math. I had a similar drop when I swapped to stock size duratracs. Weight and tread pattern.
  13. Super cool special edition. One of the local dealers here has one and I drool everytime i drive by it.
  14. 2018 Denali or SLT

    Special magnetic shocks on the denali. I have a 17’ SLT and it’s a nice truck. Smooth, quiet, and quick.
