I had a 1500 GM truck for one of my trailers, the truck was fine,
but then it was a light trailer, 8000 pound fiver.
Went to a 2500 GM gas with a 15000 pound fiver, on long hills, there is no
power and you have to shift down.
Went to a 2500 GM Diesel, all the power one needs for a
15000 fiver. Since this is a single wheel truck, I noticed tire wear, edge
of the rear tires on long trips ( went to Alaska from Ontario)
Went to a 3500 GM diesel with Duramax transmission, dual
For heavy trailers, this is the only way to go if you want to
tow a heavy trailer and be on the safe side.
You won't park the truck on a dime, but you never have to buy
another truck if you are towing fifth wheel trailers,
lots of power, lots of torque and smooth driving
with the trailer hooked up. Without the trailer the ride
could be bumpy, depending on the road condition.
All one ton trucks won't give you the ride and feel
like a Cadillac .
Good luck buying a new truck!!!
