  1. So glad I found this thread. I want to run a truck camper (TC) too and was wondering about removing these fancy new tailgates. I'd like to alternate between TC and 5th-wheel so maybe it's best to just leave the tailgate off all summer. Remember those cargo nets that everyone used to install in place of the tailgate because it was supposed to increase your gas mileage back in the day.
  2. You know, after reading all your comments I think I'm sold on getting the gasser instead of the Duramax to haul a truck camper around. Sounds like a solid engine and setup for not maxxed out towing. Just worried about resale with the gas engine.
  3. I hope to have a brand new, custom ordered, 3500 HD ready for next year's camping season here in Colorado. Let's say April. When should I place my order? I'm thinking Nov or Dec
  4. Yes, my 2020 8-speed does this. It's super annoying for a brand new truck to not be able to shift correctly. I'm sure GM has known about this for quite some time but chooses to ignore it. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk
  5. I see you have the tow mirrors like mine. Does your truck have the max tow pkg.? I'm loving the "no more blind spots" but it does warrant a little more care entering and exiting garages. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk
  6. Your truck should pull that Jayco no problem. Find the GVWR of the trailer and plan on the tongue weight being 12-15% of that number. Make sure your particular truck has enough payload once you load all the family, bikes, luggage, firewood, etc. in the truck prior to traveling. A half-ton truck will have no issues towing any of the Jayco SLX7s. Use a WDH for anything over 5000lbs. Some states require it. Long trips or many miles on the fast interstates I would use a WDH even under 5000 lbs.
  7. Here's my new 2020. Got it before all the trucks were snatched up during the lock-down. Seriously, drive by a Chevy dealership and there is hardly any truck inventory on the lot. Two things I'll never go without in a truck in the future: power folding mirrors and parking sensors. Other than those omissions, I'm liking the truck overall. Next one will probably be a HD version since we tow travel trailers here in CO. Previous ride was a 2012 GMC Canyon so this is a big jump in features and capability.
  8. Could I only use this part of the time? Like only when towing. I appreciate the better gas mileage when I'm just commuting to work during the week.
  9. Sorry I'm new to this. I know what a cat- back system is but what are "flappers" and "screens"? Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk
