  1. I think a bit is ok. Let a car pass just the truck and I bet you feel it. The trailer just magnifies it. You will get used to it in a couple hours.
  2. Good question. I felt 65 was fast enough. Just experience on the weight. I hook up without the WD bars first. Squat the truck about 3 or so inches. Then use the bars to take 2 or so inches of squat back out. Don't try to get it level. For some reason people have a hang up about levelness. I just want it to pull well! Let is squat an inch or two!
  3. It is really all about tongue weight as others have said. Also higher weight rating tires with lots of air in them. It is tough towing todays travel trailers. They are often heavier on one side because of the slide outs and sit so stinking high because the slides have to clear the tires. Wind really catches them. I have towed a '33 TT with my GMT900 and it was fine with lots of tongue weight and a early design WD hitch with separate sway control.
  4. I really like my stock antenna because it serves as a gage for parking garage height. If it scrubs a beam, pipe or sign, I know I had better be aware.
  5. I don't mind squatting the truck at all. The more tongue weight the better. I would say there is 3" of squat here. Total weight is about 9000 lbs. The motor and trans did very well. Never got over 182 degrees in 500 miles in Northern Michigan.
  6. Just take the tires down to 16PSI. You will be fine.
  7. Technology package, moon roof, huge wheels, different leather, it all ads up to have these things an LTZ doesn't
  8. I would and will buy again. Nothing but praise for my 19. Couple little fixes. The real issue is finding a good dealer.
  9. If you order a HC w/5.3 you will get 8 speed trans. Bummer. https://gmauthority.com/blog/2020/07/2020-silverado-high-country-gets-transmission-downgrade-exclusive/
  10. I guess you could bag it, but looks about right to me. Front and rear gap above the tire is really close to equal.
  11. When I drive by the Flint, MI truck and bus where the HD Silverados are made there is a train full of frames and train full of trucks out front. Also, In Lansing where the Traverse is made, trains cars lined up being loaded all the time.
  12. With a travel trailer of that size the back of the truck is going to go down. Have you tried adjusting the hitch to the next position? Do you have a hitch with the correct amount of drop? Do you have enough tongue weight? Does your hitch have an anti-sway device?Don't try to maintain the unloaded height of the truck. Down two or three inches is where you want it.
  13. I run my drivers seat all the way down. Tell them to get over it. Haha
