Hello everyone. My first time here. I have a 2021 Sierra AT4 with the 6.2L. I have started to notice a noise when towing our boat that weighs about 6,000lbs. Several times during the trip to and from the lake I hear a rumbling sound that last like 2-4 sec. almost sounds like it can be a jake brake or hitting rumble strips on road. I hit no strips. I can’t recall if it happens on downshift or what. But it does concern me. I drove home from work today with our towing and put it in tow haul mode. It made the noise 3 times in 45 min drive. Any ideas what I’m dealing with? Would it be a bad clutch issue or is this normal? I do have the performance GM installed exhaust and performance GM installed air intake. I called dealer today and they said bring it by and they MIGHT have time to get to it next week. I planned to hit the lake this weekend for Labor Day. Thanks.
I am currently in the market for a camper and I am wondering how much weight I can tow. I have 2019 Silverado 1500 RST 5.3 V8 crew cab short bed. From what I can find online I should be “okay”, but really wanted some feedback from those of you that have a similar setup. I am aware the 2500 is the ideal setup, but that will be down the line a bit for me.
Truck Trailering Info:
GAWR RR 3800lbs
Max Payload 1819lbs
Max Tongue Weight 960lbs
Curb Weight 5281lbs
The camper I am looking at has a dry weight of 6300lbs and GVWR of 9,480lbs (no intent to load our camper down or travel with full tanks). Hitch weight of the camper is 680lbs. 32’ 11” tongue to bumper. Really only looking at going camping within 100 miles on the weekends.
We typically travel light with basic necessities for hook up campgrounds (clothes, food, chairs).
any help would be great!
Hello! I'm a new member looking for some opinions on towing. I have an 88 Chevrolet r20 suburban (3/4 ton). It's a 454/th400 combo. Not 💯 sure on the rear gear as the speedo reads about 10 mph off at 60 so some previous owner has tampered with the rear gear I'm sure considering it use to haul a travel trailer back in the day for a gentleman in the air force. Assuming I replace the 33 year old leaf springs, brakes are in good working order, etc etc do you think it would tow a 8k travel trailer safely at say 60-65 mph with trailer brakes. I plan to install a Firestone airbag leveling system on the rear as well. The factory hitch says it's rated for 10000 GVWR with a weight distribution hitch. I don't see a GCWR anywhere. Trailer specs are 36ft, Dry weight of 7756lbs, with a hitch weight of 942lbs.
Im looking at getting a 3,380 LBS travel trailer, its not a goose neck, with a GVWR of 4,300 in the brochure.
Ive looked at the sticker in my Door jam but cant seem to figure what numbers are important to consider.
im a complete noob to towing so go easy on me lol
the sticker on my truck says GVWR 7100 lbs, GCWR 15000, RGAWR 3800, Curb Weight 5312, Max Payload 1788, Conventional TWR 9400Lbs, Max Tongue weight 940lbs
thanks in advance.
