I can't help you as we just purchased our first Wildwood x-lite and will pick it up next weekend. Just thought I'd see what others say.

well, you don't list the model of trailer and you don't list the specs on your Yukon, other than year and engine size.

model of trailer would help a lot and so would knowing what rear end ratio your Yukon has, is it 4x4 or 4x2, HD factory tow package or not.

also, what brake controller and WDH are you planning on getting?

I was pulling a similar camper as yours with a SUV - tow set up. Let's just say it wasn't fun on windy days and big hills were a chore. The shorter wheel base, and passenger rated tires made towing difficult. I had one too many white knuckle experiences and with my family in tow, risking our lives wasn't worth it. You also need to keep an eye on your payload, as you will run out in a hurry. Best of luck, but my guess is you will be looking for trucks in the not so near future.
