  1. The ol 1500HD, has been great, I bought it new in 2002, and it's got 238,000 miles on it. No internal engine or tranny work the whole time, just fuel pump, water pump type stuff. I figure its its about time for a new one, so trying to make sure I get what I want since I keep them for awhile.
  2. Does anyone have any feedback on how the new gasser is towing? In the MPG thread I saw some comments on MPG towing, but I'd like to know how well it tows. I'm wondering how it will compare to what I'm towing with now, as I feel I need a little more power. Currently I'm pulling a 33ft, 8000lb travel trailer with a 2002 Chevy 1500HD with the 6.0, and 3.73 gears with a 4spd trans. It struggles in the mountains of North Georgia and Tennesee. Also even when we go to Florida it is basically flat, and it will not hold 65-70mph in 4th, and so I have to tow in 3rd at 3000 rpms. Curious what gear and rpms it pulls towing on the interstate. Thanks
  3. Thanks!! I'd imagine you are done camping for a while.
  4. I'm trying to figure some options out for towing. It looks like the bed view camera option is what adds the wiring for a trailer camera. Can this be added by the dealer? I really want the ttpms, so it's on my must haves, but the camera would be nice, but I'm not seeing many trucks with the bed view option. Also since I'm hearing that going with the cheaper trailer camera set up, you only get 8seconds of rear viewing at a time, so it may not be worth fooling with.
  5. What gear and RPM does it turn at 65 with the TT? My old 6.0 with the 4spd won't hold 4th, so I have to drop to 3rd and turn almost 3000rpms on the flats. Are you pleased with the way it handles the TT?
  6. So while pulling a trailer down the road, you have to go through the menu, pull up the camera view to see behind you, and you only get that view for 8 seconds? That is really disappointing. I don't really want to pay for the invisible trailer option, I just wanted to be able to view behind me. I've been pulling campers and boats for 30 years with out it, so I guess I can live with out it, but I was looking forward to it.
  7. Does this make the hood scoop functional like on the diesels?
  8. I got an email that you had to be a member prior to Oct 1. I haven't checked back to see if there was a way around it.
  9. Has anyone checked what kind of deal you can get going through Costco? I started to fill out the form, but I figure dealers will start calling, and I'm not to the point of wanting to deal with them. Looking for a 2020 with the 6.6, in the LT trim. Sticker they way I want it is about $53, hoping it get under $45. Thanks
  10. I'm really wanting to see one in person, any idea when they will start getting to the dealers?? My 2002 1500hd with the 6.0 has been great, but at 230k miles, I'm getting a little nervous that she's gonna get tired of pulling the camper and die on the road
